Title Description - "Koch explores themes of political and personal mythology in making his large-scale photographic assemblages. In this work, the artist translates three of his "totems" into book form. Addressing such issues as the human urge to subjugate nature, rampant militarism and overpopulation, and the tenuousness of the current social fabric, these latter-day totems are both invocation and invective."--Nexus Press. 29 June 2009 (printedmatter.org).
