Gibson's methodical, detail-oriented approach to photography, coupled with an willingness to travel to remote areas of the Western United States, has yielded a body of work of stunning vistas all rendered in exquisite panoramic black-and-white photographs. In many of the images, Gibson allows himself to be drawn towards the trees that inhabit the area. In plate 17, Ancient Tree, Hell's Backbone, the weather-worn trunk and branches of a time-tortured juniper balance on the edge of a ravine, the view giving way to the sheer cliffs and tree-dotted landscape stretching endlessly beyond. Each book is signed and numbered (to 800) by the photographer.
