OCEANO – Fall 2023

OCEANO (for seven generations)
a monograph of photographs and essays by Lana Z Caplan

published by Kehrer Verlag
Fall 2023

Oceano is portrait of the Oceano Dunes, a telling of their many stories: ATV riders and their RV village, the Chumash of the past and present, the Dunites (artists, poets, astrologers, mystics and hermits living in the dunes primarily in the 1920’s-40’s), the recently unearthed plaster sphinx from Cecil B. DeMille’s 1923 Ten Commandments movie set, and a reimaging of Edward Weston’s modernist dune photographs.
