Description


For readers who are fond of Georgia O'Keeffe's art and her legend comes Journey with Georgia by new author Nikita. A truly engaging experience, this coffee table book of photography takes a very specific detour in describing one of America's most revered artists. With a searing prose, Nikita chronicles a cross-country road trip in which she set out to capture the essence, as well as the purity, of what drove O'Keeffe. Nikita goes where the road takes her and, in this case, all roads lead to Georgia. As she shares the epic experience of retracing O'Keeffe's history, she shares intimate stories of Americans who were affected by O'Keeffe. From Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, where O'Keefe was born, to Lake George, New York, where O'Keeffe spent her summers with her lover and husband Alfred Stieglitz, Nikita takes the scenic route on this odyssey that ultimately ends at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. A gripping narrative, this incredible collection celebrates what quickens the heart and helps define the American experience.
