Judy Natal, Earth Words (Contact Sheet 126)
If you can get your hands on one, you should do that—it's an incredible book of provocative eco photography. Natal uses letters to spell things in the landscape. Sometimes the rocks and trees seem congruent with the words Natal places on them. Sometimes they don't. There's a fabulous play back and forth between human meaning (the world) and nonhumans' resistance to it (the earth).
Future Perfect is also very disturbing and powerful (see above). Visit her web page for more details.
