These Rare Lands: Images of America's National Parksby Stan Jorstad, Mark Strand
From the dusty red sandstone formations of Arches, the miraculous chasm of the Grand Canyon, and the rugged beauty of Yellowstone to the primal forests of the Smokies and the secret mysteries of the Everglades, America's National Parks are so rich in natural splendor as to defy documentation. But if any photographer can do justice to the subject it is Stan Jorstad, whose unrivaled images fill the pages of this magnificent work.
Strongly influenced by his mentor and friend Ansel Adams, Jorstad nonetheless photographs in color and often with the panoramic camera. The dazzling results are unrivaled by the work of any other living photographer and include some of the most astonishing landscape photos ever created. With a moving introduction written by Robert Redford, Mark Strand, one of this country's greatest poetic voices, contributes a text reflecting on the splendor and the meaning of the parks themselves and on the almost mystical beauty of Jorstad's photography.
