Appropriately, Dennis Stock discovered the sun as the central graphic element of his own life while on assignment to the golden hills of Umbria, Italy. He was there to photograph the landscapes that had become so central to the philosophy of St. Francis of Assisi, and, inspired by that experience and by St. Francis' own record of gratitude for his celestial ''brother,'' Stock set out to begin the major work of his career -- a photographic appreciation of the sun. The quest has taken Dennis Stock to almost every comer of the earth. And this book may be but the first published installment of all the images he will have recorded when the quest is done. Once, a friend examining the photographer's portfolio inquired of Stock: "Where did you take all these pictures of the sun?" And Stock, like St. Francis a bit of a mystic himself, replied: "That's what I'm trying to find out." Good photography is an introspective art. Increasingly, people of all ages are turning to the camera not so much to arrest a particular image as to explore their own responses to the world around them. In this sense, then, they will find a credible mentor in Dennis Stock, whose photographs are never obvious but always unique. From his opening statement -- a risen sun breaking the day through spears of marsh grass -- to his final image of sunlight refracted in the moisture of a window pane, Stock brings to this book not only an appreciation of the sun but a moving expression of his own sense of wonder in the temple of nature.
