so sublime...

Recommended Posts

i'm working on a project exploring the relationship(s) between the following:

1. "the sublime",

2. representations of landscape, and

3. the nature of photography (i.e. it lies)

could anyone recommend any relevant books, articles and (most coveted) quotes on the subject(s)?

I don't deny that there should be priests to remind men that they will one day die. I only say it is necessary to have another kind of priests, called poets, to remind men that they are not dead yet. - G. K. Chesterton
