"Captures in amazing detail the beauty of the landscape around Thacher Park, especially along the Indian Ladder Trail. Yang's photographs are reminiscent of works by the great 19th-century landscape photographers Carleton E. Watkins and William Henry Jackson. His seductive prints lead the viewer on a visual hike along Indian Ladder Trail, opening the eyes to expansive scenery at one moment and drawing one inward at the next, into dark and mysterious chambers of layered rock. A quiet timelessness pervades his scenes. A lyric journey, filled with a sense of self-discovery" (Publisher's blurb). John Yang is an American photographer of Chinese descent who deserves to be much better-known. Mainstream recognition of his sublime work is very long overdue and well-deserved. A "must-have" title for John Yang collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the half-title page by John Yang. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time. This is the only signed copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 38 color plates. One of the finest living American photographers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOHN YANG TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0939072165. $80.00
