I have collected photography books for years, and have John Sexton's two previous books, 'Quiet Light' and 'Listen to the Trees.' I expected to find this book of new work interesting, but it exceeded my expectations in every way. The combination of the four different subjects is fascinating, but the images themselves are startlingly beautiful. The essays by Sexton, Walter Cronkite, and Rob Pike tie the photographs together beautifully.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

John Sexton Rules!
I am neither an employee of Ventana Publication, nor am I paid to write good words about this book. I have always been a fan of John Sexton's work. Who else alive can match his fantastic printmaking skills. I will say it with confident; none. John Sexton is the only person I know who comes close to the printmaking standards of Ansel Adams. 'Places of Power' is all about beautiful prints. I am not a technology 'freak,' so I am in no postion to comment in this area. But if you love black-and-white images, photography, the zone system or large format images, this IS the book for you. Personally, I think $60.00 is a small price to pay to be able to appreciate John Sexton's work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
