The Photographic Book.

The photographic book is perhaps one of the finest venues for a solid body of work, the product of a long term project, or one’s life work.

Timeless.

I have stacks of National Geographic magazines loitering around the house, as well as books from my youth, read, reread lining the wooden shelves of my mountain home. Some novels remain unopened- awaiting a quieter time in my life. There is perhaps no such time in the foreseeable future… A deeper passion is my love of images, and the books that exemplify that visual journey – a collection that will see no end in this lifetime!

Some of my absolute favorites are pictured here, mostly image collections, but the artistic visions of photographers; Abell, Stanfield, Kashi, Allard, and Harvey are represented by their respective published works. To soak up a collection of photographic work is an education in itself…may the tea kettle often whistle!
