"His own words best sum up the relationship of his California landscapes and his concept of vision: " Rocks, trees, rivers, the people, eventually blend together to make a landscape in which each is a part of the whole. The landscape of a people is the greatest factor in moulding their habits, their looks, their physical and spiritual attributes. To feel and then successfully record these attributes is the end I seek in landscape photography." Slipcase in very good, book in near fine condition. (Inventory #: 12087)
