Not sure if this photographic artist has been named in this forum section, but Ive recently become wow-ed with this guys work. Im noticing a trend for myself I like documentary photographers I was in my local bookstore when I saw a copy of the Genesis book. It was HUGE and HEAVY. I pulled it down and, before I even turned the first page, I was absolutely stunned by the front cover. Then I opened it and was absolutely stunned by the amazing images inside. And they were B&W! All of them! The content was so live and vivid; a beautiful combination of the photographers eye, his heart and the mediums used. Seeing his images in this book has me inspired to huck around my Pentax 645 and shoot in black and white (whereas I have relegated that duty to 35mm format mostly). The image quality was quite amazing and, while I know he switched to shooting digital while in the midst of this books project, I think some were Pentax 645. Seeing these images has me inspired to shoot beyond just 4x6 quality and present a higher quality and larger print for not only myself but to clients as well. (Ive kind of wanted to do a 20x30 of a Vancouver Cityscape of Chinatown for my wall). Beyond the technical, I found that there was such a close intimacy in his images. It felt like you were there and could almost feel the people or animals breathe or smell the air. I always thought landscapes looked better in color until I saw this book and his work. Im blown away by the large, high-quality prints of the landscapes that he took photos of. Thats not to say that I think landscapes in color are now bad but rather that I think landscapes in black and white are definitely more within my own mental realm of possibility. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe he has been conducting a project to restore the rainforest from farmland?
