Reviews

Sherry presents the viewer with an opportunity to contemplate the deep connections we have with our planet - what is seen on the surface verses what is hidden below. The viewer is left to contemplate where the truth lies.--Linda Alterwitz "Lenscratch"
American Monuments focuses on the areas under review, with special emphasis on those that have already been decimated. Sherry documents these pristine, sacred and wildly diverse areas using the traditional, historic 8×10 large format. The resulting photographs not only convey the beauty of these important and ecologically diverse sites, but also shed light upon the plight of the perennially exploited landscape of the American West.-- "Smithsonian"
