Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA-An eclectic collection of 60 essays, based on 6 years of Rowell's columns written for Outdoor Photographer. His erudite selections range from the general and ruminative to the esoteric; they are tied together by the belief that the key to creating great pictures is a photographer's inner vision. While nonphotographers will find his thoughts on foreign cultures, environmentalism, and other topics quite captivating, the book caters to shutterbugs who have achieved a degree of proficiency but who stand to benefit from the author's artistic insights. Anyone, however, should appreciate and enjoy the photographs. Over 140 astounding, full-color shots illustrate the concepts Rowell sets forth and truly give the volume its power.

From Library Journal

Many of the photographs in this book are nothing short of remarkable. Ranging from shots of climbers dangling acrobatically on the sides of mountains to luminous sunsets, the exceptional images throughout emphasize exotic peoples and places, notably the airy reaches of Tibet. Refreshingly short on text, the book is driven primarily by the photographs themselves, along with brief captions about how each image was made. The spare text allows one to concentrate on the photographs in what essentially is a travelog of the photographer's best work. Galen Rowell's Vision is beautifully printed and very reasonably priced for a book of this quality. It should be considered for both photography and travel collections in public and academic libraries. Highly recommended.
