"Edward Ranney has photographed the natural and man-altered landscape for over thirty years, specializing during that period in recording important aspects of pre-Columbian archaeological sites of Peru. His photographs of Inca sites of the Andean highlands were made during the 1970's and published in depth in Monuments of the Incas.

The photographs presented here reflect Ranney's ability to depict the rock shrines carved in situ at many sites, as well as his sensitivity to the Incas unique adaptation to the highland landscape around Cusco.

Individual showings of this work have been presented at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago, the Stanford University Art Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 1998 Ranney selected and supervised the photogravure printing of ten images of Machu Picchu to accompany the publication by The Limited Editions Club of Pablo Neruda's poem The Heights of Macchu Picchu."–photo-eye Gallery

With the same requirements as those of Maxime Du Camp.
