No Dust Jacket, As Issued. Unpaginated, Foreword by Nancy Sojka; The 36 Tritone Plates, notes on plates, acknowledgemnts. First Edition, 2005. Signed and Dated on the Half-Title by the Photographer. "Of the photographs in Gathering Calm, most are from Michigan, while some others are from Iceland and elsewhere. Although looking at each, it becomes clear that geographic origin is not important. What matters is Schwab’s way of seeing; his ability to gather what he needs from the happenstance of earth, light and air. It is not the thing seen so much as it is seeing itself, and the eloquent, nearly tranquilizing poetics of light that make Schwab’s work what it is. He is never merely quoting; he is reclaiming the already-seen world for private contemplation and the gathering of evidence." Jerry Herron (Detroit Metro, June 2005). Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Brown cloth with tipped-in b&w plate on front board, blind- stamped lettering to spine. Size: 4to.

11.5 x 12 inches

Bill Schwab knows landscapes – and indeed, it’s evident that he loves them. His methodology is both intuitive and analytical. Through his experience of the outdoors – learning about weather conditions, light, and the natural characteristics of a geography – he has developed a sense, not necessarily of knowing what to expect but rather of knowing about what to remain vigilant.

"Often, his landscapes are of a splendor that can only be described as poetic. At other times, the subjects are simpler yet equally Poignant and range from the humorous to the mysterious." from the foreword by Nancy Sojka.
