From the editor's introduction:
"In BADLANDS, Schroeder’s photographs of empty and seemingly empty and presumed-to-be-empty-but-really-not-empty spaces (including the eponymous holy territory that is now held by South Dakota) also enact Keats’ valuing of doubt, question, mystery. What are these spaces for, the photographs seem to ask. What do they withhold from us? How can we know them? The photographs refuse ‘knowing’ as a rubric, to some extent, leaving us with the strangeness of objects-as-themselves.
"Schroeder’s eye is intent on refocusing: a landscape photograph appears to be deserted, until the tiny upright bodies of tourists appear, marking it both occupied (in several senses) and immense. His photographs ask us to reconsider what is important, what is significant, and what is visible. They say, you think you see the important thing here, but you don’t. Look again. This is Schroeder’s “being in uncertainty”."

We ship from Belgium. The Belgian postal service is expensive, can be inefficient, and is sometimes very slow. Lost packages are rare (and small lost packages even rarer), but we have had this happen very occasionally (six times in three years).
We cannot replace packages that go missing unless there is delivery confirmation on them; otherwise we have no recourse to compensation from the postal service.
If you are concerned about your package reaching you, please opt for delivery confirmation by adding it to your cart (click here). You will not incur extra shipping charges, only a charge for delivery confirmation, including tax.
