Gorgeous book, incredible photos!

by donna on 1/10/2009

This is a beautifully printed and presented collection of Galen Rowell photographs. The text complements the pictures well and gives insight into the mental and artistic approach Rowell had in creating his famously spectacular photographs. I knew his work originally for mountain and mountain climbing photography. Thus, it was interesting to read of his fascination with light and the artistic process of creating meaningful images. Its a great pity he died so young -- at the height of his career. However, we are fortunate his heirs and the caretakers of his photo collection are using great insight and sensitivity in continuing to share the best of his work with the rest of us.

Product Overview

"Galen Rowell (had) a wonderful combination of qualities--eye, energy, intelligence, sensitivity, courage both physical and moral, and above all, heart. Very seldom have I experienced so clearly defined the connection between the artist and what he sees, feels, and does with the work itself."--Robert Redford
