The Colorado Plateau has long drawn photographers to its vast, state-spanning expanse with its striking landscapes and awesome natural beauty. However, one photographer in particular has made the area his second home over the past 40 years, visiting numerous times a year and often staying for weeks on end. In fact, it could be argued that there are few photographers who know the area better than the author of Plateaus and Canyons, Bruce Barnbaum.
The title depicts the sheer variety of different rock formations and patterns contained within ‘Canyon Country', an area so vast that it covers several states and bears more of a resemblance to the surface of another planet than our own at times. Barnbaum demonstrates an innate understanding of the landscape of the American Southwest, with some truly stunning images accompanied by words that give an insight into this unique setting. One warning however - purchasing this book could result in an irresistible urge to embark on a costly trip to experience ‘Canyon Country' at first hand.
