Synopsis: In sixty practical yet inspirational essays drawn from his Outdoor Photographer column, and in 145 stunning color photographs, world-renowned photographer Galen Rowell explains and demonstrates the techniques he uses to transform light and color into vivid, uniquely expressive art.
The illuminating essays in Galen Rowell's Vision are grouped into four chapters covering the fundamental aspects of the art of adventure photography as practiced by one of its masters: "Goals," transforming dreams into realities through personal vision; "Preparations," pushing the limits of equipment, film, and technique; "Journeys," merging visions with realities; and "Realizations," communicating one's worldview through photography. Throughout, Rowell includes examples of some of his most memorable images and relates fascinating anecdotes from his extraordinary photographic career.

Review: What makes Rowell one of the world's top photojournalists and sets him apart from others in the field? Steve Werner, editor of Outdoor Photographer, says the magazine's most popular columnist pursues his art the way a mountain climber pursues a peak: "planning the logistics, overcoming the hardships and conquering the unknown." The text, based on Rowell's monthly column for the magazine, is accompanied by images "chosen to illustrate concepts" rather than exhibit his best work -- or so he claims. Don't believe him; the pictures will blow you out of the water as surely as a well-placed stick of dynamite.
