"...the best book of photographs I've seen in years. Trimble's accomplished style with words doesn't let down his pictures or his vision." —The Durango Herald
"The vast spaces and close confines of the Grand Canyon...are given their due in Lasting Light. This book, made all the more beautiful by author Stephen Trimble's words, is an homage complet to a much-loved space." —Bookpage
"This wonderful book is much more than a coffee-table collection of beautiful Grand Canyon scenes in splendid color. Trimble's historical narrative provides important background to contextualize these photographers wihin their changing times while the biographies and portfolios serve as mini-seminars with each artist." —Journal of the West
"The story behind each photo is as lovely as the photograph. You can’t help but touch the pages, hoping somehow to touch the past." —BookPleasures.com
Lasting Light: 125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography brings readers into the hearts of great photographers as they devote years to seeing, really seeing, the Grand Canyon. Their images fill this book, and their stories bring to life their pictures from the 125 years that photographers have explored the Canyon.
Stephen Trimble interviewed 21 of the finest contemporary Grand Canyon photographers, and these profiles bring to life the relationship between artist and landscape, between dedicated artists and an American icon they have helped to create. A fascinating narrative history of photography at Grand Canyon places these contemporary photographers in context. Lasting Light celebrates what all of us learn every time we peer through a viewfinder at this enduring treasure we call Grand Canyon.
