Weighing the Planets is a collection of black and white work by Olivia Parker. The Friends of Photography in Carmel, California published this in 1987 as the 44th book in their untitled series. This collection focuses on Parker’s studio constructions put together from found objects, photo copies, and shadow projections. Parker herself does not attempt to explain the meaning of this beautiful and complex work—I certainly do not feel qualified to do so. This is a magical collection I often return to.
