What Is Lost, What Is Found


Mountains loomed in the horizon line. Standard, cliché clouds. After a stretch, green pops of brush. At first, the sediment in the mountains growing up in size was indistinct, all mottled beige, but the layers became more obvious as I got closer, red and brown. 

In a series of Believer Logger posts, author Stephanie LaCava explores the theme of lost landscapes. Her most recent post explores the work of sculptor Isamu Noguchi, the landscape paintings of J.M.W. Turner, and the scenery of the western United States. In triangulating the three scenes, LaCava uncovers their mysterious beauty.
