About this title

Synopsis:

Cosmopolitan and sensitive, articulate and composed, Wohlauer is a master of the dramatic image, the framed landscape, the arrested instant. In this collection of fifty of his best images from his work over the past decade, the viewer is treated to dolmans from Ireland and standing stones from Scotland, the sweeping waves of the Big Sur and Oregon coast, and the majestic and dramatic vistas of the American desert. These landscapes, carefully crafted, beautifully printed, stand beside his quiet and unassuming still lives and his sculpted nudes with an assured authority. This is a photographer who feels no need to strain for effect, to manipulate techniques, material, or subject matter, or batter the viewer with proof of his virtuosity. The material is left to speak for itself, reflecting a talent that knows precisely what it is doing and is content to let the drama of the subjects at hand speaks more loudly than the man behind the camera. Beautifully printed in fine-line duotone, this is an extraordinary record of compelling vision of an artist working proudly in the footsteps of Adams, Weston, and Strand.

About the Author:

Formally trained as an historian, RON WOHLAUER came to photography while working for his MA at Cambridge University. He was steered by Ansel Adams to the University of Oregon where he received his degree in 1973. Married with two children, he makes his home in Denver, managing to travel often to Scotland, England, and Ireland.
