Publisher's Description

Peter Happel Christian’s début monograph, Half Wild, borrows its title from a passage in Our National Parks, written in 1909 by John Muir, who contemplated the public’s “growing interest in the care and preservation of forests and wild places in general, and in the half wild parks and gardens of towns.” Using this phrase as a way of thinking about both his surroundings and photography itself, Happel Christian constructed the work that comprises Half Wild over the course of several years at his home in the Midwest and in Muir’s home, Yosemite National Park.

In her accompanying essay, Liz Sales discusses the relationship between the wilderness and photographic abstraction, a potentially limitless territory.
