Craig Hergert has just published a book of his panoramic photography, which I saw at the store, Montana Panoramic Gallery & Beaucoup Framing, in the Emerson galleria during the last art walk (second Friday each month). Speaking for myself, not only do I find these images stunning in their gorgeousness, but they draw you in magnetically to peruse the terrific detail and imagine yourself wandering through the scene. One thing you’re never aware of is the effort and skill required, in the field and after, to create these landscapes. But any photographer who has tried it will keenly appreciate the accomplishment represented on every page.
You can order the book or Craig’s prints from the Montana Panoramic web site. Update: I also spotted signed books at Country Bookshelf, and they can probably be found elsewhere, as well.
