This is a photography book, and although some tips are offered to aid others in similar photography, it is not an instruction manual nor is it a travel guide. There is very little text.
Monument Valley is a spectacular location where hundreds of Hollywood films have been produced and countless scenes for television programs and commercials have been created. If you should be fortunate enough to travel there please bare in mind that Monument Valley is not a national or state park and that it is part of, and belongs to, the Navajo Nation. You are a guest there, you are in a sacred area and you are in their home. Please behave accordingly.
The entrance to Monument Valley is just across the Arizona - Utah border in southern Utah but all the monuments are located in Arizona. I have confirmed this with both maps and discussions with the Navajo people who live there. This would not seem to be a point of contention but it has come up all too frequently. If you are taking a photograph with your lens pointed north then the monument you are photographing is in Arizona but the background is in Utah.
Monument Valley is rather remote however there is a new hotel, The View Hotel, that is located at the very edge of Monument Valley, is rather nice and has a good restaurant and is only a short walking distance to a very popular vantage point should you wish to take photographs at dawn. I usually stay at the Hampton Inn in the town of Kayenta Arizona. It is a 22 mile drive to the Valley but I often find many photographic opportunities along the way.
The following photographs were taken with an assortment of film cameras over a rather long period. This book contains more than 60 photographs all in black and white.
