    yep agree, some parts of Hoflehner's work are similar to Kenna's but still VERY exceptional.

    I have most of these books, too. They are great!

    But I can`t help, it`s almost the same style or at least very similiar. Nevertheless exceptional photography, I agree.

    I wish I could do that!

    Glad to share, Manalishi,

    There's something universal and spiritual about photographs of trees. Since reading your post I have shared Mr. Hoflehner's web site with about a dozen people and now they are interested in his work. I shared the site with my father who lives in the Northwest Territories in northern Canada and he loved it!
    I agree that yes, Mr. Hoflehner's work is similiar to Kenna's, but there are differences if you look closely. I have also looked up the island of Socotra and learned what an amazing place it is. They have only recently allowed visitors to the island. (1999) Thanks again for the inspiration.

    Thanks for the link. Hoflehner's work is gorgeous. His style seems to be the dominant one at the moment and it is timeless and, I think, often placeless in that it could have been taken in any of many sites.

    Yes Kate. Hoflehner's images from Socotra are great and unique - haven't seen any other quality images from there so far. I have already pre-ordered his monograph 'Socotra - Island of Wonders' and also his 'Yemen' book. I think they will be released in April (?). So far, I own Hoflehner's 'Frozen History' book and also 'Unleashed', both are extremely amazing, and printing/binding is also perfect. It looks MUCH better than in the book-tease from photo-eye, not comparable!
