In the early 2000s, Cook diverged from her portrait work with a new project, Stone Walls, during which she examined the crucial interactions between humans and the land they inhabit. For this project, Cook embarked on an eight year journey around the world, documenting stone walls and landscapes found in the United States, England, Ireland, Peru, Malta, and more. Cook’s work is in public and private collections around the world, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art; J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Bibliothèque nationale de France; Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris; and National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC. Eleven critically-acclaimed books of her work have been published, including best-selling Fathers and Daughters, Stone Walls: Personal Boundaries, and most recent, Lifeline. Through a single image, Cook successfully conveys the vast yet universal aspects of the human condition. She reminds us of not only the emotional vulnerability involved in relationships, but, more importantly, the power of unity that makes life alongside others worth experiencing.
