Summary
"Between 1989 and 2001, David Wing spent one hundred winter days in Death Valley, seeking the photographs for this book. They present a kind of map of his search for pure light, a personal journey to new meditative destinations in this well-known but still surprising place....Wing defines a precise and empathetic relationship to a unique and transcendent landscape. In his short essays, he ... guides the fellow-traveler, pointing out elements of the valley's particular and stunning character, among them "the great overarching stillness...."--Dust jacket blurb."
