Recently, I composed a piece based on the great photographic images of Ansel Adams. He, too, was a musician and discovered a similarity of concept in photography. A composer thinks in terms of tonal contrast, harmony, and form. Igor Stravinsky once said, "The faculty of creating is never given by itself. It is goes hand-in-hand with the life of observation." Through his photographs, Dave Black invites us to observe the world through his artistic, selective eye. A single image can evoke memories and emotions, proving once more the truth in the old adage, 'A picture is worth a thousand words.' --Dave Brubeck (Jazz Legend, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Recipient, 2009 Kennedy Center Honoree)

As I See It is a harmonious collection of vivid travel photography by talented photographer Dave Black, whose professional career as a musician and composer has taken him to many of the Earth's most exciting destinations. Enjoy the diversity of our world through this collection of colorful glimpses into foreign cultures and exotic lands. --Elizabeth Carmel (Hasselblad Master Photographer Award Winner)

These photographs by Mr. Black convey much more than mere visual descriptions. They bring the true essence of special and beautiful places directly to the viewer, as if being there in person. Highly recommended! --John Wimberley (Renowned American Landscape Photographer)
