Click to preview TERRA INCOGNITA photo book

"A veritable cornucopia of visual delights, this book has it all and then some!" says Frank's mother about "Terra Incognita."

"A tapestry of beautiful images, every page a surprise!" says Frank's sister.

"Ansel Adams never dreamed of making landscape images like these," says Frank's brother, referencing the only other photographer he knows.

"OMG! I can't believe I married this man!" says Frank's wife. Can they all be right? Decide for yourself.

One hundred fifty black and white and color images culled from over thirty-five years of perception, this book brings together some of Frank's favorite works, old and new, for the first time in a single volume. "A great companion volume to Frank's previous retrospectives 'Simple Gifts', 'Grey Matter', and 'Sticks and Stones.' Collect them all! No photographic library should be considered complete without one," says Frank.

Seriously folks, do yourself a favor and check it out!

How could so many family members be wrong, I ask you? Not possible says this former student. If nothing else this book will make you look at landscape with different eyes, maybe with a real photographer's squint!
I like being first; hope I am. PCR
