About the Author
Debra Bloomfield's poetic large-scale color photographs are included in the collections of the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Phoenix Art Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the George Eastman House, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Terry Tempest Williams, one of the nation's leading environmental writers, is the author most recently of When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice.
"The images [Bloomfield] captured . . . express something essential to the idea of wilderness as it was first articulated in the 1964 Wilderness Act: a landscape that is untrammeled, self-willed, and self-possessed."--Orion
"Bloomfield's photos--of glistening water, of islands rising out of estuaries, of thick stands of trees--are . . . atmospheric. They're lovely and poetic, but they do not so much evoke a specific place as they conjure up a universal wilderness."--Tucson Weekly
"The photographs collected in Wilderness offer a unique and genuinely personal perspective on the nooks and panoramas of those wild places--a puzzle of sky caught through a close-up tangle of leafless branches; the line where a streak of dark trees cuts a sudden edge into a clearing. The rawness and intimacy of the images lend them an emotional, meditative quality, reminding viewers of our own unexpected, astonishing glimpses of nature."--High Country News
