Overview

In Timeless Texas, long-time fans of Laurence Parent's photography will be introduced to a contemplative side of this talented artist, who, for the first time, presents his vision of the Texas landscape in black and white.

With a thoughtful introduction by another Texas icon, Elmer Kelton, and a personal note from the photographer, the book unfolds as a tribute to the enduring landscape of Texas, as seen through the lens of someone who knows it well. Like looking at old family photographs, these images remind us why we miss Texas when we leave it and why certain places remain comforting by their very constancy.

Parent's attachments to and recollections of these places come alive in extended captions that depict the adventure, hard work, and funny moments in the life of a professional photographer. By climbing those mountains, chasing those clouds, and taking that quiet pause at a hidden waterfall, Parent has created a Texas ciaroscuro that is bound to captivate all who go with him.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Laurence Parent's Texas landscape photographs combine shading, texture, and light in an alchemy all his own. This collection of black-and-white pictures present the Lone Star State in sharp natural relief, lending even more significance to its apt title.
East Texas Historical Association
This brilliant black & white study is evocative of a Texas worth conserving, challenging us to husband some of our natural capital for the future. Someone should send a copy of Timeless Texas to every member of the Texas Legislature, where important votes for our parks, wildlife, water, and our great grandchildren will be taken.
Texas Living
...evocative duotone images that capture hard work and adventure...
Bryan-College Station Eagle
Timeless Texas by Laurence Parent would make Ansel Adams proud. It's a stunning collection of black-and-white photos depicting the diverse beauty of our state . . . a must-have for the Texana book collector.
