The wild coastline and spectacular scenery of one of America s greatest natural treasures have been uniquely captured in this emotive collection of fine art photographs by internationally acclaimed aerial photographer Robert Campbell. For almost 40 years Campbell has made repeated flights over the Point Reyes peninsula and the adjacent San Andreas Fault Zone, interpreting the countryside in unique compositions as the weather and seasons change.
Some of his striking photographs reveal recognizable landmarks in views beyond our land bound experience a stunning panorama of the Point Reyes Lighthouse, for example, taken from a seabird s perspective. Other images, no less powerful, frame small details and patterns on the ground that speak to us with their abstract beauty. Campbell s photographs stand on their own as individual art pieces, while also working together to connect us emotionally to an extra-ordinary landscape. Combined with insightful and well-observed text by award-winning writer Frank Binney, the images provide a fascinating window into the stories behind the Point Reyes peninsula s world-famous scenery.
