Students of Deep Springs College

Photographs by Michael A. Smith. Text by L. Jackson Newell and William T. Vollmann.
Lodima Press, Revere, PA, 2000. 84 pp., 53 quadtone illustrations, 11x9½".

One of America's hidden treasures and a fine example of a classic liberal arts education, Deep Springs College recently ranked third in the nation, academically, yet the school is virtually unknown. Located high in the eastern deserts of California, and so remote the nearest fuel station is 30 minutes away over a mountain pass, the college was discovered by photographer Michael Smith by chance, while out on a photography excursion. Offered a position at the school, Smith readily accepted; the images in this gorgeous book are a record of the students and landscape of the school. The 600-line quadtone reproductions are matchless.
