"These images of historic Shaker buildings are stunning." Stephen J.
Stein, author of The Shaker Experience in America "[These] spaces ...
are mirages infused with a sense of reality and epiphany." --Juhani
Pallasmaa, Former professor of architecture at Helsinki University of
Technology and currently Ruth and Norman Moore Visiting Professor of
Architecture at Washington University in St. Louis "I have written that
when an architect finds out that LIGHT is the main subject of
Architecture, he begins to be a real one. How could a real architect
not know about LIGHT? How could a good photographer not control LIGHT?
How could a good professor not speak to his students about LIGHT? Henry
Plummer, who is a real architect, a splendid photographer, and also a
wonderful professor, does all of these things for us in Stillness and
Light." --Alberto Campo Baeza, Architect and Visiting Faculty at the
University of Pennsylvania School of Design "This is a book that you
will want to have open and in sight, turning its pages from time to
time, absorbing the meditation its photographs evoke. The stillness is
the stillness of concentration, a quieting of the mind that could be
termed soulful. The light glowing from its pages is transformative. The
words bring thought to place, echoing original intent, giving their own
illumination to the qualities of Shaker life and thought. The quality
of color and light indeed give "earthbound rooms a skyward inflection".
The photographs are masterful; their vantage, profound. Plummer's work
not only records Stillness and Light, it gives them." --Donlyn Lyndon,
Eva Li Professor of Architecture, University of California, Berkeley
