Intensely beautiful photographic prints, at the very leading edge of Canyon photos....almost beyond description!
If you buy one copy of this book, you'll then want another for a gift, and another for your own collection.....etc.
The book is a delight to the soul! And it is not just for the wonderful photos that fill the pages. I have tons of coffee table photo books, but this is one is special on the concept. I spent a full evening on my recliner enjoying every page.
The book is organized on time period sections. Each section lists on the cover section page the main Grand Canyon photographers of the period. Then, you have 2,3 to 4 pages dedicated to each photographer with their lives and courtship with the Grand Canyon.
The diversity of people that turn to be photographers and adventurers is just fascinating. The other interesting thing is to see the diversity being reflected on the photos: water vs rock; micro vs macro; adventure vs contemplative; sunrise vs sunset; ...
Another interesting thing is that on the section cover pages along with the dates, they have the key cameras of the period. There is actually a timeline with the major US events and all the cameras from the folio ones to the Nikon D70 digital.
Although I suppose others may find it interesting, we didn't want a book of prose, we just wanted amazing photos. This was not that book.
