Gorgeous book, incredible photos!
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.
