Portraits of Earth

“This book is a collection of the lessons I learned as I floundered-about, trying to learn a new discipline that I thought, at first, had no connection to what I was known for: portraits. And yet the longer I thrashed, the more I found myself in familiar territory, looking for light, lines, and moments.  While landscape photography is a discipline all it’s own, it’s not unconnected from other forms of photography. Composition is composition, and it doesn’t matter whether the subject is a bride, a whale, or a stunning landscape.” -David duChemin

Pages from Portraits of Earth

“I hope you find in landscape photography the same thing that I’ve found, which to my great surprise is the same thing I found in portraiture: that the real joy is not the photographs at all, but the encounters those photographs make possible, and the revelations they provide.” -David duChemin
