Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a California that is familiar — Yosemite, Marin, the Owens Valley — and yet remarkably new. Internationally acclaimed nature and landscape photographer Art Wolfe has taken pictures on every continent, often traveling to the most remote locations in search of perfect light on unique landforms. The exquisite range of California's landscape has long inspired Wolfe, and this book brings together his best pictures in a celebration of the golden coast, rich forests, elemental mountains, lush valleys, and colorful desert. Wolfe offers a personal landscape in his images of place, and the result is California as it has not been seen before.

Review:

"Seattle Photographer Art Wolfe, who knows how to find the bright spots in a place, has published California and does his usual fine job of displaying the natural wonders of the Golden State." Seattle Times

Review:

"This book is a perfect demonstration of Wolfe's ability to paint with light and sculpt with nature's textures. His dried mud puddles, coastal bush lupines, sea anemones and details of the forest floor are deliciously abstract." The Source Weekly

Review:

"Art Wolfe's eloquent exploration of the state's diversity in terms of its natural beauty, plant life and wildlife." Sacramento Bee

Synopsis:

Internationally acclaimed nature and wildlife photographer Art Wolfe has long had a love affair with California. Along its coastline he finds iconic vistas and light playing upon water in ways that crystallize the very idea of West Coast. In this luscious book, he explores all of the natural regions of the state including the alpine lakes of the high Sierra, the ancient forests, and the uniquely abundant and colorful desert. Wolfe showcases a California that is familiar — the craggy peaks of Yosemite, the fog-caressed rolling grass hills of Marin, the arid high-plains of Owens Valley — and yet remarkably new as seen through his expert lens.

Synopsis:

Internationally acclaimed nature and landscape photographer Art Wolfe turns his lens to a celebration of the golden coast, rich forests, elemental mountains, lush valleys, and colorful desert of California. 130 color photos.
