"Landscape with Light, a subtle and gorgeous book of cinematic ekphrasis, asks an important question about the nature of visual culture: "Do we still worship the old god of beauty, or have we created a new one..." The repurposing of light is clear here, making fluid recalibrations of seeing and feeling into luminous phrases; capturing a form of organic thought in motion pictures. In a language at once illustrative and occult, Jon Thompson is questing for a higher light." -Peter Gizzi
