Red Rock Yellow Stone is a photographic journey through America's greatest Western parks. Edwin Firmage, two-time recipient of the Printing Industries of America Premier Print Award, combines over 80 large-format photographs with classic haiku from Japan and haiku of his own to create a unique pictorial and literary appreciation of the landscape. As the haiku poets understood, you can find beauty in the commonplace as well as the unusual. Seeing beauty in ordinary things is what haiku and photography as art forms are about.

Trained in Near Eastern Studies, I later spent 10 years working as a marketing director and product manager for high-tech firms in Utah and California. This experience helped me focus my attention on what it was that I truly wanted my life to be. A late bloomer when it comes to art, I was over thirty before I took up photography. And, it was only after I began using the 4x5 camera several years later still that I began to produce prints worthy of anyone's notice. Photography is more than a job. It's a way of experiencing life, a discipline, visual tai chi. Photography is a way of exploring my connection to the worldReview:
