Overview

Mary Randlett Landscapes by Mary Randlett

Mary Randlett's photographic vision of the Northwest is big-hearted, intricate, and tender and fully inhabited by the animals, tides, forests, mountains, and spirits that dwell there. What others may take for granted, Randlett sees as quintessential: overcast days with endless and often exquisite variations of gray clouds, raindrops on puddles, dripping branches, and distant shafts of sunlight breaking through the cloud cover. She is steeped in the history of the Northwest and its many art forms.

Mary Randlett Landscapes presents a visual record of the Northwest at its most pristine and poetic. During her many years of finely tuned observation, Randlett has learned to take the time to ponder the essences of what she sees—the curl of a bird's drifting feather, a water strider not quite breaking the surface of the water, fog ascending a hillside, the moment a pond's surface turns to ice. Her photography brings this corner of the Northwest to the world.

What People are Saying About This

Mike Dillon

The book offers up the Northwest’s moss and rain, sun and shade and its quicksilver light, as if the freeways and tall buildings — the cash nexus — weren’t out there somewhere. But we know they are.
