For more than 20 years, the books of photographer Charlie Waite have enthralled lovers of landscape photography everywhere. Now, in a very special collection, he has tried something new; the first volume devoted solely to his black and white images--more than 50 breathtaking plates--many never before published. In the great tradition of Edward Weston and Ansel Adams, he finds in black-and-white a perfect vehicle for revealing his creative voice. These photographs are rich in reflective surfaces, filled with texture, luminosity, and mystery; they capture the subtle shades of desert sand and sky as camels trek through; the vivid personalities of three old men sitting side-by-side in Lijiang, China; the twisted beauty of an unusually shaped tree in Lombardy. Amateur photographers will particularly appreciate the plate index with information on the camera used, the lens, film, exposure, and filter.
