I have just received a copy of Don Kirby's latest book entitled Wheatcountry and would heartily recommend it as a book of inspiration for all Landscape photographers out there.
The Wheat lands are a very large but often overlooked subject, one that is usually taken for granted or ignored as desolate. Some find beauty in this desolation and Don has managed just that. By utilizing a personal technique has has manipulated the landscape and presented a dramatic yet sympathetic view.
As a budding Large Format Monochrome Landscape worker I would wholly recommend this book. Theres not much said about technique but a few casual references to 5x4, the Zone System etc but the pictures say all I needed from the book. These pictures inspire and invoke that urge in me to 'get out there'. For those who can't get out there its a memorable ride from the armchair.
