About the Author

'I make images... so that all my moments will not be lost in time like tears in rain.' ~ Skip Hunt Skip Hunt, born on the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma, is a professional photographer in Austin, Texas. He picked up a 35mm camera in the mid-1970's and has never stopped sharing his unique vision via photographic images. Many moons ago, he was bitten hard by the wanderlust beast and has been canvassing the globe ever since. Visionary artists such as Pete Turner, David Lynch, Cindy Sherman, and Andre Kertesz set Skip's sight on a fine-art horizon early on. His insatiable thirst for rich color and even richer cultural exploration keeps him on the road most of the time. When he's recharging his batteries, he calls Austin, Texas home.

There are few and far between commentaries that act to transport us into a totally new perspective of our world. This lovely synthesis achieves a "shift of shifts" through exquisite photos and lively text. A joy to read. Truly transforms the US of A into an exotic landscape.

I am a fan of Skip Hunt. I am taken by his incredible artistic eye.
As an abstract/expressionist painter I was amazed at Skips
abstract compositions. His travel photographs are a visual
treat. This book is no exception.

Skip Hunt's photography is remarkable for its beautifully vivid color, incisive composition and varied locales, including Mexico, Guatemala and South Africa. Now he has published this book on his motorcycle travels through the South West U.S. It's beautifully done, and would make a great gift. Or even better, keep it for yourself, and some cold grey afternoon, jump on the back of the bike and travel with Skip on an adventure through the sunny Southwest. Skip is a wonderful photographer, and proves himself to be an equally skilled writer. You'll like it.

Skip Hunt has written a book of his unplanned journey that would be enough on its own to make the reader enjoy it. However, he has also chosen to add some of the most amazing photography that really spices up the story and allows the reader to travel on the journey with him.

You are taken from one place to another and can live in the moment as you view the beautiful photography and read his words.

Whatever you read this year, make sure you have added Skip Hunt Go West: finding the exotic within the mundane (Volume 1) to your reading list.

Fantastic images of the American South West in this beautifully produced book. Skip is a really talented photographer and his journal of this latest road trip carries you along with him, in words as well as stunning and sometimes quirky images. Makes you want to head for the open road, great reading on a snowy English day!!

No only is Skip a photographer with a great sense of place and design he also knows how to write. A rare combination. This is visual interesting and orally stimulating. He can tell a story.
