Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this handsome volume provides a retrospective look at the first 25 years of Emmet Gowin's career. From his early (and continuing) series of intimate photographs of his wife, children, and extended family, on through his later landscape work-- including images of Mt.
