Alaska: A Photographic Journey Through the Last Wilderness by John Pezzenti

Alaska is a photographic portrait of one man?s journey into the heart of America?s last wilderness. John Pezzenti has a wilderness soul and an artist?s temperament. He obsessively seeks out the remotest corners, the most beautiful natural places, and wildlife in its purest state?and then positions himself and waits patiently for the perfect image. He records the flora and fauna and the brilliance of the Alaskan landscape with the highest craftsmanship and artistic purpose to be found in nature photography today. He has accepted the solitude of his pursuit, has withstood injury, and has risked danger to obtain his photographs. He is driven by the fear that civilization and technology will inevitably intrude upon the pristine wilderness and forever alter its compelling beauty.Here, then, is one man?s photographic odyssey through the Alaskan wilderness, from the Aleutian Islands, Kodiak, Katmai, and the Kenai Peninsula to the fjords and waterways and the Tongass Forest of the southeast, the Wrangell Mountains, and on to Denali, the Alaskan Yukon, and the Arctic Circle. Along the way he records encounters with brown bears and grizzly bears, golden eagles and bald eagles, sea lions and sea otters, majestic moose, Dahl sheep, and one very disoriented lynx. In his text he also describes some encounters with a few creatures of the human variety. Pezzenti?s Alaska is an unforgettable experience.
