Take a journey around the American West (without the dangers of backcountry travel) through over 50 full-page color photographs on high-quality gloss paper by Eric Thome, who incorporates his skills as a trained fine artist and graphic designer into his photography.
Photograph subjects include advertising signs, automobiles, cultural sites, ephemera, flowers, historic architecture, landscapes, mines, rock art, ruins, sculptures, a streetcar, and wildlife.
Photographs in this volume range from western cities and towns to remote ghost towns (in the process of vanishing from existence) and wilderness. With authentic historic western locales from the states of California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.
The historical eras of the subject matter photographed in this book span from Pre-Columbian to the 20th Century.
Native American subjects include petroglyphs, pictographs, and Ancestral Puebloan architecture. Other cultural photos vary from a Basque aspen arborglyph (these are disappearing as the trees reach the end of their lifespan) to San Francisco's Chinatown.
