Inhaltsangabe: A seductive and exotic photo-essay, "Green Eyes, the Greenest Fields", combines great literary references with stunning photographs of people from Africa, Asia, South America, India, Europe, and America, who all share the common trait of "green". Unlike other eye colors, such as brown or blue, green eyes are a genetic roll of the dice, which can appear within each generation, or each hundredth generation, and represent not only our common ancestries due to commerce and cultural exchange, but also our kinship with the Earth itself. This book is a fabulous photographic work that will keep you coming back for more.
Vom Autor: When we first began working on this book, the question most often asked was why? Why do an artistic work, or any kind of work, on the subject of green eyes? On numerous occasions it was pointed out to me by the sharp-eyed observer that I do not even have green eyes, or blue or hazel ones for that matter. But my feeling has always been that an artist does not need to possess an aspect of beauty in order to appreciate and capture it. And it is indeed quite a subject. It is powerful and emotional, exotic and seductive. Greater still, it is historical. Around our vast globe, green eyes can exist in almost any ethnic group that has been exposed to another, very different, culture during some time in its past.
Where the Moors once visited France and Spain, and were visited in turn, the green eye emerges. Where the English once set very large foot prints in Africa, green eyes emerge. Where the Chinese, the Mongolian, and the Russian lands meet, green eyes emerge. In countries such as Brazil, where they believe that their multiculturalism and mixed blood lines are their strength, green eyes are far from rare, and exist in the most unimaginable color combinations of skin and hair and facial features. But the key point that can be taken from this work is the acknowledgment that whenever there has been some point in a country or culture's history where they have interacted, whether commercially, colonially, or competitively, with a group of people physically unlike themselves, the green gene was sown. Unpredictable, inexplicable, and mystical. Green eyes are arguably one of the most mysterious and entrancing physical traits. Their luminescence never escapes notice.
