Description

This title is shot in more than 50 locations across a 130,000-square-mile area, straddling the borders of Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. The Colorado Plateau is a magnificent wilderness featuring the most breathtaking collection of multicoloured landforms found anywhere on earth. Timeworn canyons, mesas, and vast windswept deserts form a great expanse of exposed rock formations; buttes, towers, spires, hoodoos, arches, windows, fins, domes, bridges, and badlands comprise a surreal world of colour infused wonders. This remarkable assemblage of geological diversity and spectacular beauty attracts millions of visitors every year. The photographer takes the reader to all the famed locations, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Petrified Forest, as well as less-accessible and relatively unexplored tribal lands and slot canyons.

Author Biography

Jon Ortner was born in Great Neck, Long Island in 1951. He started painting and drawing at an early age, which laid the foundation for his photography. In college, Jon continued to pursue art, natural history and ecology. In 1978 he moved to New York City with his wife, Martha, where they opened a photo studio and continue to collaborate. Jon's books, Where Every Breath is a Prayer, Angkor, and Buddha are the culmination of numerous journeys to the far corners of the Himalaya and Southeast Asia. A compilation of NYC images was published as Manhattan Dawn &Dusk. His awardwinning images and stories have appeared in numerous magazines such as GEO, Communications Arts, Travel & Leisure and Architectural Digest. Jon has turned his focus and passion to the canyons and deserts of the Southwest. From the greatest canyons on earth, to the brilliant swirling colors of the Grand Staircase and Vermillion Cliffs, he has shown us a wilderness of rock at once familiar yet astounding. By creating panoramic portraits of this vast, monumental landscape, he hopes to share his unique vision of the beauty and incomparable majesty of America's greatest natural treasures.
