Book Description

11 Jun 2009
Stephen Strom has photographed in the south western desert lands of the United States for more than 20 years and this book brings together, for the first time, a selection of his most powerful and memorable images. Strom brings to this landscape the sensibilities of an astronomer who has lived in the desert for almost two decades. His photographs capture a land shaped both by the millennial forces of prehistory and also by yesterday's cloudburst. His images have the power to compress vast desert spaces in an illusion of intimacy and comprehension, presenting undulations of colour and form which appear reimagined in a light that at once penetrates and sculpts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful abstract desert landscapes 26 Mar 2012
By A. Lipman - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book at an exhibit of Stephen Strom's desert landscapes in San Francisco. His beautiful and subtle photographs focus on the abstract beauty of this landscape of muted earth tones. The sky is never visible in Strom's photos, which immediately sets them apart from most landscape photography.

This is not the kind of landscape photography that Elliot Porter does. Strom's colors don't pop out at you; they are subtle and delicate.The beautiful and intriguing patterns of the earth, rocks, and sparse plant life are what make these photos so interesting. The plates in Strom's book are outstanding reproductions of the actual photographs. Each of the 42 photographs in this volume is 10.5 inches square, so it it possible to enjoy the fine detail in each photo.

I enjoyed this book immensely.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money! 28 Dec 2011
By Roger F. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am extreemly disappointed in this book. I've visited many of the sites where these images were made and the author didn't do justice to their beauty. And, the printing is of poor quality; poor color rendition and washed out. Sorry, but there's not anything positive to say about the book.
