About the Author

Ken Duncan is one of the world's leading panoramic landscape photographers. Based in Australia, his distinctive images have appeared in many books and magazines. Ken's outstanding Limited Edition Prints are displayed in many private and corporate collections worldwide and in the highly acclaimed Ken Duncan Galleries.

More About the Author

I first got interested in photography in my early teens and became quite unpopular by dismantling my father's Bellows camera to make a B&W enlarger. On leaving school, I went into photographic sales, progressing to become senior technical representative for Australia's leading photographic supply house. When that company imported the 'Widelux' camera, I found a vehicle which could finally translate onto film exactly what I could see in a landscape.

Photography quickly became a passion. In 1982 I left Sydney to realise my dream of producing a quality book of Australian images. Little did I know that the dream would cost me my house, cars and everything else I had and take five years to complete.

During my travels around Australia, I have collected over 100,000 panoramic images. But I had to endure many hardships in the pursuit of that dream. A fall from Kata Tjuta in Central Australia resulted in gangrene and the eventual amputation of my left big toe. The freezing damp of western Tasmania caused hypothermia and severe damage to my nervous system that took many months to recover from.

I spent most of my time from 1982 to 1986 travelling extensively throughout Australia. During that time I married my beautiful wife, Pam, my strong supporter, my faithful ally and my best working buddy.

As a photographer, I see himself as merely an interpreter of God's creation. The art is in seeing, capturing and presenting these images to others.

Would be a great coffee table book.

It is a refreshing escape away to many of the naturally beautiful and peaceful oases that still exist in America.

Format: Hardcover
I was drawn to panoramic photo's because it is similar to our own field of view. While some frames in this book are reminiscent of other panoramic photographers, Ken's view has it's own uniqueness. His composition is superb and each page brings a visual delight. Rich colors, locations to yearn for and all within a book that has equally impressive photo's page after page. We've all see those books where a few photo's are awesome only to be followed by a few not so's...Ken's pictorial doesn't disappoint, at least for me. I place this at the top of my collection.
This book is a quality effort with overall good production values that will be a nice addition to any collection. While I may wish for a heavier stock paper, it is well within it's range and I bought this book at full retail; still a good buy.

This book has the most beautiful images I have ever seen. Some of the pictures are so good you'll find yourself unable to turn the page. Get this book. I promise, you'll find at least one picture that's worth the entire cost of the book.

My whole family, teenagers included, keep looking at this book. We've been to many of these places, but the way Mr. Duncan presents them is beyond words.

This is an awesome book and covers the majesty and beauty of America from sea to shining sea.
Don't forget to check out his other book, Australia Wide. Another incredible collection of photographs.

I flipped thru the book at a local book shop. The book would certaintly make a beautiful gift. The photos are technically sound and beautiful. In some cases I had a feeling, however, that the author got distracted by the panoramic format. There are a few photos that would deserve a tighter composition and would look fine with a 2:3 aspect ratio.

A truly God inspired walk across our great land through the eyes of Mr. Duncan and his camera. The sights lift us above the mundane and stressful world of daily life to vivid sunrises and sunsets. While I have personally visited many of these beautiful places, I now desire to see them all.
Allows one to take an armchair trip ,a moment of spiritual escape, through our uniquely different and varied landscape. A must for every American and great for anyone who treasures the world as God designed it.
