In The Shade of the Tree
This volume of stunning photography discloses the spirituality and ethos of a people and vast geography of earth in a way that cannot be communicated through an academic treatise or lecture. The photos of this book include the nooks and horizons of Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, the Silk Route, and China -- the people, landscapes, and architecture of an expansive and often misunderstood region.
As the readers glance at the photos, they will find themselves interested in both sides of the lens: the objects of Sanders' insights and also the artist's own spiritual sensitivity that has helped him "see" a story, for example, in an old wall of Morocco, in the languid gaze of an African girl, in the haunting arches of Andalusia, and in a peculiar tomb in the desert of Sudan. The photos are accompanied by quotations from various sources, including a variety of spiritual masters, the Prophet Muhammad, and the Quran (the Muslim scripture). Also included are appropriately brief histories of Mr. Sanders' experience in taking the photos. In the Shade of the Tree is Mr. Sanders' first published volume, although his collection of unique photography number in the thousands and have been published in exhibits and numerous publications around the world.
