In the Peace of this Place
A photographer's connection with the Hocking Hills of Ohio
by Jim Crotty
About the Book
A photographer's creative vision and interpretation of the Hocking Hills of Southeastern Ohio. Jim Crotty discovered his passion for nature and landscape photography when he first visited Hocking Hills State Park in the winter of 1980. He has since returned, again and again, to refine his art and rediscover the spirit and soul of a haunted landscape that sits on the edge of the Appalachian foothills. This volume includes a narrative essay by the artist photographer on both Hocking Hills and The Inn at Cedar Falls as well as his calming and peaceful imagery captured through the seasons from spring 2009 through fall 2011.
