Take a look inside Nevada Rock Art at photo-eye.com

Nevada Rock Art contains rarely seen images that are themselves artifacts of fieldwork conducted throughout the back roads, valleys, summits, drainages, and mountain ridges of Nevada. From the northernmost wildlife refuge to the sun-blasted southern tip of creosote-bush country, the process of photographing is itself a testimonial to better than two decades of exploring and experiencing Nevada’s beguilingly diverse landscapes.

Black Rock (paperback)


black_rock_coverThe Black Rock is a desert realm the size of Delaware about one hundred miles north of Reno, Nevada.

Shaped by water, wind, geothermal activity, and human interaction since ancient times, the desolate, haunting landscape nonetheless teems with life in forms that have endured for millennia.

In a brilliant duet, a photographer and a geographer explore this eloquent, enigmatic landscape that has been the focus of study and contemplation by scientists, explorers, naturalists, overland sojourners, and artists.

Bombast: Spinning Atoms in the Desert

Atomic Nevada: Deceptive is a scary word, especially with hesitation rising about government roles.  Since the start of the Atomic Era in the mid-1940s, the state of Nevada has lived with more than its share of misdirection, with senior figures in the military, tame politicians, scientific boffins, dismissive journalists, and government officials routinely bowing before the nuclear genie.  This book is for those interested in how and why manipulated language and imagery doled out by the atomic industry become parts of our lives.
