America’s Vanishing Landscapes
The Western States
Photography and text by Wayne Williams
Preface by Andy Lipkis, founder of Tree
Heroic images in vivid color depict some of the greatest of the West’s natural landscapes: mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, lakes and coastlines.
Williams, a professional photographer with his own commercial studio for 20
years, has spent the last ten years exploring and shooting wilderness
Simultaneously he has explored the perfection of the Iris print
process to create a body of work that causes many viewers to gasp at his Limited
Edition images, now celebrated in this stunning book.
Accompanied by the
author’s eloquent, heartfelt, and thought-provoking introductory essay "Dream of the West," the images show California from stark deserts to lush forests, Montana’s glacier-sculpted grandeur, Colorado’s rich reserves of awesome nature, the fragile redrock of southern Utah, Wyoming’s epic scale, the wondrous
coastlines of Oregon and Washington, and Hawaii’s surreal dream landscapes all
together in a thematic tour-de-force.
90 pages, 11-3/8" x 10½", 60 full-
color photographs, photographer’s notes. Published by Companion Press. ISBN 0-

"Features 60 images of some of the West’s most ecologically threatened area... and they’re all spectacular... a scenic wonder."
~Phoenix Magazine, December 2002
"Imagine a world without pollution, trash, or development. No, it’s not a John Lennon ballad but the work of Wayne Williams."
~Los Angeles Times
