      “This book is a treasure trove of adventures missed, captured and earned. Between the humour, the lessons, the wonder and the close calls there is proof of a life lived. The life of a man who takes chances, dreams big and then works to turn dreams into cherished memories — into stories.” —Curtis Jones, landscape and adventure photographer


      The Art of Misadventure is an autobiographical fun ride. Author Dave Brosha provides us with a merry-go-round of escapades, insight, humour and, obviously, misadventure. An engaging journey into the wonder of things that occasionally go horribly wrong for all the right reasons.” —Bill Arnott, bestselling author of the Gone Viking travelogues and A Season on Vancouver Island

      Description
      A curated collection of 100 stunning black and white images from some of the world's more unique locations.

       

      In a world of staggering colour, it's a bold choice in the modern age to strip colour out of the equation and present visuals of the planet in time-honoured black and white. In Tones of Grace, Canadian photographer, author, speaker, and educator Dave Brosha presents 100 meticulously crafted black and white images of the world around us, including landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, and the majesty of wildlife. Rather than simply a collection of monochrome photos, however, Brosha presents us with his masterful visual introspections, each a moment that combines experience, passion, dedication, craft, and experience to enable the viewer to look upon “the world out there” from a different perspective, with the goal of inspiring us all to consider our surroundings more carefully.

      With images spanning Canada and the planet, Brosha is a storyteller at heart, and he constructs in this remarkable collection a visual narrative that will bring the viewer to lands near and far, and make you think about light, shadow, shape, and subject in ways you might have never considered. With subjects as diverse as Antarctic penguins, soaring mountain tops, desert sands, apartment buildings, crows, wild horses, and highways, each page is a journey – a viewpoint of the world at large – that will make you look a little more closely at your own personal environment.

      “In Tones of Grace, Dave Brosha shares an intimate journey around the world of moments touched with intent and quiet reflection. As with much of Dave’s work, it is impossible to separate the art from the artist. His vision and compassion for the natural world are apparent on every page, as real and exposed as the timeless black and white captures that live within.” —Curtis Jones, noted explorer, adventurer and documentary photographer of the Canadian Arctic whose work has appeared in National Geographic Adventure, Canadian Geographic, The Globe and Mail and numerous other venues.


      Tones of Grace is a masterful, timeless celebration of monochrome imagery and a reminder that even when stripped of the colour element, our planet still holds tremendous beauty and grandeur. This thoughtfully curated collection emphasizes Dave Brosha’s compositional skills as he explores the interplay of light and geometry in a wide variety of enchanting and intriguing environments. In Brosha’s work we see that black and white photography is very much alive and well.” —Paul Zizka, award-winning photographer; author of Spirits in the Sky: Northern Lights Photography, Aloft: Canadian Rockies Aerial Photography and The Canadian Rockies Rediscovered among other photo collections

    The Kootenay Wolves Five Years Following a Wild Wolf Pack John E. Marriott Canada
    9781771604949 Hardcover NATURE / Animals On Sale Date:May 17, 2022
    $45.00 CAD 11 x 8.5 in | 176 pages Carton Quantity:14 Canadian Rights: Y RMB | Rocky Mountain Books
    • Marketing Copy

      Description

      A spectacularly illustrated photography book full of behavioural observations and wolf tales that will engage those interested in the state of wild wolves in North America.

      On August 24, 2013, professional wildlife photographer John E. Marriott received a phone call that would dramatically alter the course of his career for the next half decade. A friend of his had witnessed gray wolves eating a moose carcass on the side of a highway at dawn that day in Canada’s Kootenay National Park. By the time Marriott arrived hours later, the moose was gone, hauled away by Parks Canada staff, but a lone wolf remained. Marriott’s first magical encounter with that member of one of the Rocky Mountain national parks’ most secretive wolf families spawned an incredible five-year project by the photographer to learn more about these wolves.

      The Kootenay Wolves chronicles Marriott’s tenacious efforts hiking, snowshoeing, and hiding silently in camouflage for hundreds of days to document these wary wolves and their tenuous hold in a home range rife with danger, including tourist traffic, transport trucks, trophy hunters, and trappers. Marriott not only watched this family thrive against all odds but also saw and photographed some truly astonishing behaviours rarely documented in the wild before.

      Join John Marriott for a visually exhilarating journey into the daily lives of the Kootenay wolves as he introduces you to Hawkeye, Whitey, Stranger, and the truly extraordinary wolf he simply called Mom.

      Bio

Marriott is one of Canada’s premier professional wildlife and nature photographers, with a career spanning two decades and images published worldwide in National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Canadian Geographic, Maclean’s, and Reader’s Digest.

      “The Kootenay Wolves is a rollicking adventure from one of Canada’s best wildlife photographers and a thoughtful and poignant reflection on the tenuous existence of wolves in Canada’s Rocky Mountain national parks. Above all, it is a story of love both for and among wolves.” —Jeff Gailus, author of Little Black Lies and The Grizzly Manifesto; winner of numerous magazine awards for environmental journalism

      “The Kootenay Wolves is just what is needed to help wolves everywhere survive in an increasingly human-dominated world. John Marriott’s heartfelt dedication to these amazing beings shines through on every page – through detailed, long-term observation of known individuals, beautiful prose, and stunning photographs – in which he captures just who wolves truly are. I hope this superb book enjoys a broad, global audience, because wolves are the more visible ‘canaries in the coalmine’ who can attract a good deal of attention to what is happening to them and to numerous other non-humans in the Anthropocene, often called ‘the age of humanity’ but in reality the narrow-minded, anthropocentric ‘rage of inhumanity.’ Kudos to John for speaking from his heart on behalf of wolves and other non-humans. I’m sure the animals are thanking you!” —Marc Bekoff, PhD, author of Rewilding Our Hearts: Building Pathways of Compassion and Coexistence and The Animals’ Agenda: Freedom, Compassion, and Coexistence in the Human Age (with Jessica Pierce)

      “The Kootenay Wolves gives us a glimpse into John Marriott’s relentless commitment to telling the story of one of the most majestic, elusive and imperilled species out there. Through a stunning collection of photographs that are sure to stir up emotion and bewilderment, John enables the reader to develop an understanding of the adversity faced by the Kootenay wolves and a deep appreciation for their resilience. Once again Marriott harnesses his passion for conservation and his artistic talents to provide a voice for the wilderness.” —Paul Zizka, author of Spirits in the Sky, Aloft, The Canadian Rockies: Rediscovered and numerous other photo collections

      “John Marriott has done the nearly impossible in this book: with beautiful, impactful images and heartfelt words he gives us details of the story of one family of wild wolves. Individual wolves are notoriously difficult to even see, let alone observe over a long period of time. With great determination and skill as both photographer and wilderness navigator, John has given the reader a rare opportunity to get to know individual wolves. His words paint a vivid picture of their habitat and the life of the family, including births and deaths.” –Cheryl Alexander, author of Takaya: Lone Wolf; Takaya’s Journey; and Good Morning, Takaya

    $39.95 CAD 11 x 8.5 in | 224 pages Carton Quantity:16 Canadian Rights: Y Heritage House
    • Marketing Copy

      Description

      A stunning art book featuring twenty-four west coast artists and craftspeople who work in metal as their primary medium.

      Out of the Fire: Metalworkers along the Salish Sea is a breathtaking celebration of a diverse group of contemporary artists and artisans, who explore the creative possibilities of an ancient medium. From sculptors to farriers, forgers to blacksmiths, jewellers to metalsmiths, and weapons makers to welders, the twenty-four people featured in this book reflect the wide range of talent, skill, and ingenuity that exists on Canada’s southwest coast.

      Miran Elbakyan captures movement and whimsicality in his Surrealist-inspired sculptures. Nycki Samuels earned the moniker “Tough Tiny Welder” on the road to artistic freedom, as she fought her way through the male-dominated world of industrial metalwork. Ts’uts’umutl Luke Marston began making jewellery when he was still a teenager, honing the skills of his craft at the same time as he was learning about the imagery and oral narratives of the Coast Salish Peoples. Combining a love of technology, fashion, and the industrial arts, Bev Petow has the remarkable ability to transform cold, hard steel into delicate-looking dresses. With over one hundred spectacular colour and black-and-white photographs of the artists and their works, this book is a stunning behind-the-scenes look at those who choose fire as their tool and metal as their raw material.

      Praise for Out of the Fire: Metalworkers along the Salish Sea:

      “This fabulous book takes you into the metalsmith’s sacred creative space, their shop, their studio, their lair. The excellent photographs incite a desire to feel the heat, the grit, the sweat, and to witness the focus of these makers in their flow. By choosing metal as a medium, the metalsmith shows fearlessness, determination, and indomitable spirit.”—Brigitte Clavette, RCA, metalsmith/silversmith and educator

      “Out of the Fire is a very inspiring book that opens so many doors to our imagination. Stunning artworks combine passion, dedication, perseverance, and hard work.”—Claudio Pino, award-winning master jeweller

      “Out of the Fire is filled with sumptuous photographs of exciting works of some of the most talented west coast metalsmiths. It is particularly fascinating to see inside their studios. This insight sets this book apart and creates more of a kinship between the reader and artist. I am impressed!”—Donald A Stuart, CM, OOnt, RCA, gold/silversmith

      Praise for Out of the Woods: Woodworkers along the Salish Sea:

      "It is a true gift to be able to move from a two-dimensional world into a three-dimensional world and see what is waiting to be released from a material as organic as wood. An idea, combined with a sense of design and an ability to work with light and shade and rhythm, as the carvers on these pages display, shows amazing versatility that goes miles beyond craftsmanship. It is indeed a pleasure to go for a walk within these woods."—Robert Bateman

      "If you're looking to get a small yet intimate glimpse into what it's like to lead the life of a craftsperson, you'll want to read this book. The photography is first class and the text light and engaging."—Canadian Woodworking and Home Improvement

      "Out of the Woods is a treat to the eyes and hearts of west coasters."—Ormsby Review

      Description

      Photojournalist Leah Hennel’s intimate portfolio of photos documenting the impact of COVID-19 on life in Alberta during the pandemic.

      Leah Hennel has been documenting Alberta’s frontline workers and the COVID-19 patients they care for as an Alberta Health Services staff photographer since the early days of the pandemic. Showcasing the lives of those who refused to give up in the face of adversity, Hennel’s photographs beautifully illustrate how citizens, doctors, nurses, and patients in Alberta have adapted and found safe new ways to celebrate, socialize, and work during a time of global chaos. At the same time, these sensitive and haunting images dramatically illustrate how Albertans have dealt with the death, tragedy, and uncertainty that the pandemic has wrought upon the province.

      The COVID-19 pandemic has been a watershed moment in world history. In many ways, it has reshaped the way we live our lives, and many of its effects will live on. As time goes by, though, the memory of these past months will start to fade and life will eventually ease back into some kind of normalcy. But these photographs and the stories they tell will always be here, providing a record of this historic event and a reminder that catastrophe can strike at any time.

      Stories of resilience and courage, of suffering and celebration, are everywhere in today’s world. Alone Together shines a revelatory light on one particular place during an unprecedented – and ongoing – global event.

      Description
      A beautiful collection of colourful images from the brilliant and inspiring night sky of the Northern Hemisphere.

      Few natural phenomena compare to the drama, surprise, and beauty of the northern lights. Witnessing their dance across the sky is a magical and unforgettable experience. Capturing the aurora borealis with a camera, though, takes careful planning and persistence, an understanding of the science, attention to the data and conditions, and a dose of luck.

      For over a decade, landscape photographer Paul Zizka has been on a chase to capture the northern lights – one that has taken him right off his doorstep in Banff, Canada, throughout the Canadian Rockies, and to the far-flung corners of the Northern Hemisphere: the Northwest Territories, Yukon, Nunavik, Labrador, Iceland, and Greenland.

      This spectacular collection compiles Zizka’s finest northern lights photographs and showcases the varied nature of this celestial display in an array of settings. From electric green to royal purple, streaking the sky over mountains or reflecting off iceberg-laden seas, Spirits in the Sky displays the aurora borealis like you’ve never seen it before.

      Bio
      Paul Zizka is a professional mountain landscape and adventure photographer.

      Description

      A beautiful collection of photographs and personal reflections on the life of professional ski mountaineer, surfer, climber, and all around adventurer, Chad Sayers.

      At the age of 18, Chad Sayers chooses to pursue a perilous existence in the world of professional freeskiing. Immediately successful, he rides high on a train of celebrity, sponsorship, travel, and freedom. But “living the dream” is, in reality, a tiring treadmill of daily risk that eventually sets him adrift from family, friends, lovers — even himself.

      As injuries and emotional traumas pile up, his identity fractures into a hall of mirrors — the flickering images of athlete, son, brother, traveller, and seeker veiling the reality of a man running blindly from heartbreak and physical debilitation. Then one day, in the mountains of France, hanging by a finger above certain death, he sees the one reflection that finally scares him straight: a man who doesn't care. To heal this severed connection to reality and the constant pain he lives with, Sayers quits skiing and turns to his other passions of travel, surfing, and photography.

      In Overexposure, some of the world’s greatest outdoor photographers contribute to this engaging story in order to parse not only the high-stakes gambits required for a pro skier to stay in the spotlight, but also the grandeur of the stage on which these play out. The international roster of renowned photographers included in this stunning work are: Oskar Enander, Mattias Fredriksson, Jordan Manley, Paul Morrison, Steve Ogle, Daniel Ronnback, Chad Sayers, Jason Thompson, Eric Berger, David Carlier, Guy Fattal, Garrett Grove, Guillaume Le Guillou, Bruno Long, Kari Medig, Bruce Rowles, Ben Thouard, and Don Weixl.

      Bio

      Chad Sayers is a skier, surfer, climber, and photographer. He has spent 23 of his 41 years inside the belly of the beast that is professional freeskiing: competing, adventuring, and experiencing ski culture in the far corners of the winter mountain world. Along the way he has graced dozens of magazine covers and starred in award-winning film projects such as A Skier’s Journey. An inveterate traveller, Sayers has made his way through over 60 countries on six continents, whether searching out the perfect ski run, the perfect wave, or the perfect light. Through it all, passion and spirituality have marked his path. He makes his home in Whistler, British Columbia, where he keeps one eye on the peaks above and the other on his daughter, Aiya.

      Leslie Anthony writes broadly on many topics, including travel and popular science, drawing on his diverse experiences as a zoology professor, outdoor adventurer, poet and writer, director, host, and performer in myriad projects, from stage musicals to television and film documentaries. He has written for Outside, explore, Mountain Life and The Tyee. Leslie’s two previous books are Snakebit: Confessions of a Herpetologist and White Planet: A Mad Dash through Global Ski Culture. Leslie lives in Whistler, British Columbia.

      Taylor Godber is a writer, backcountry snowboard athlete, surfer, traveller, and wellness and environment advocate based in Pemberton, British Columbia. Her freelance work has appeared in such publications as Mountain Life Coast Mountains and Snowboard Canada. She is also the editor of Below Zero magazine.

    Borrowed Time Calgary 1976-2019 George Webber Canada
    9781771604420 Hardcover PHOTOGRAPHY / Photoessays & Documentaries Publication Date:November 23, 2021
    $50.00 CAD 11 x 9.75 in | 208 pages Canadian Rights: Y RMB | Rocky Mountain Books
    • Marketing Copy

      Description

      An intriguing exhibition of documentary photography and micro-essays highlighting the growth and evolution of one of Canada’s most interesting, and complicated, cities.

      Shortly after completing university and starting work in 1975, a young George Webber borrowed a camera and took a stroll in downtown Calgary. From that point on, he discovered how his affection for the city could be transformed and harnessed through photography.

      For 45 years now, George has documented the theatre of the street: people playing, arguing, flirting, celebrating, regretting, eating, praying, and hugging. Through his sensitive and masterful lens, he has thoughtfully preserved images of men and women, wrestlers, businessmen, cowboys, waitresses, truckers, street performers, priests, and night clerks.

      Set against ephemeral backdrops of newspaper boxes, gas stations, trailer parks, billboards, hand-painted signs, abandoned streets, motels, bulletin boards, and pawn shops, George Webber’s latest portfolio preserves much of Calgary’s recent past and immediate present through a colourful kaleidoscope of intimate glimpses that will endure for decades to come.

      Bio
      George Webber is a renowned documentary photographer whose previous collections with Rocky Mountain Books include an illustrated edition of Robert Kroetsch's classic novel Badlands, Prairie Gothic (with Aritha van Herk), Last Call (with Karen Connelly), Alberta Book (with Fred Stenson), and Saskatchewan Book (with Lorna Crozier). He is the recipient of numerous National Magazine Awards (Canada), two Awards of Excellence from the Society for News Design (USA), and an International Documentary Photography Award (Korea). His images have been featured in American Photo, Canadian Geographic, Lenswork Quarterly, Photolife, The New York Times, and Swerve magazine. In 1999 he was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in recognition of his contributions to the visual arts in Canada. George lives in Calgary, Alberta.

      Praise for Borrowed Time:

       

      “A picture is worth a thousand words, and in this B-side portraiture of Calgary, George Webber captures the city in all its fallible soft spots. Ice-cold lonely nights of storefront hope; the glory days of Stampede Wrestling; the strange, colourful mosaics of the Calgary Stampede; and a hundred identifiable places of everyman. These are places you know, people you know, feelings you've had gazing on your own city.”
      —Micheline Maylor, Poet Laureate Emeritus of Calgary (2016–18) and award-winning author of The Bad Wife, Little Wildheart, Whirr and Click, and Full Depth: The Raymond Knister Poems

      “Experience Calgary through the eyes of George Webber and see our mercurial city captured in slow, vibrant motion. Webber's striking photographs tell stories of this place and its people with insight, humour, and heart.”
      —Shaun Hunter, author of Calgary through the Eyes of Writers

      “This remarkable collection runs from the punk-hair mohawks of the 1970s to the pale goth roller-girls of later years as the black-and-white images give way to splashes of colour just as surely as Stampede Wrestling gives way to the Calgary Stampede: garish cotton-candy pinks and Tilt-a-Whirl rides, the gaping mouth of a plastic clown, a happy receptacle for our garbage. It is a credit to the singular talent of Webber that he makes such kitsch appear poignant and haunting.”
      —Will Ferguson, award-winning travel writer and author of Happiness, 419, and The Finder

      “The story of the street. History caught in a glimpse. Nouns that no longer exist. This is a legacy of landmarks – a sign of what's to come – undone. Lost to the lost and found – found to the found and lost. This pictorial documentary exposes the extraordinary in the ordinary and the ordinary in the extraordinary. It is much more than a book of pictures – it tells us a story of ourselves – it makes us look inside.”
      —Sheri-D Wilson, Poet Laureate Emeritus of Calgary (2018–20), internationally known performance poet, and award-winning author of YYC POP: Poetic Portraits of People; A Love Letter to Emily C; The Book of Sensations; Re: Zoom and numerous other collections

      “Brilliant of George Webber to ignore the skyscrapers and the men in suits and all the other measures of sleek success, and to concentrate instead on Calgary's many other selves and moods: the fondness for something showy and loud and crass and gauche; something that can be celebrated in the suite of colours that neon comes in; that shows some leg; that promises you some glory at a cut rate; that often falls flat and is run right over.”
      —Fred Stenson, award-winning author of Who by Fire, The Great Karoo, Lightning, The Trade, and numerous others.

    Resilient The Portraiture of Wayne Simpson Wayne Simpson Canada, Dave Brosha Canada

    • Marketing Copy

      Description

      Stunning images are beautifully presented alongside biographical essays that enhance the soulful nature of this unique portfolio.

      Many people wear a lifetime of experiences on their face, yet who that person is and what they have experienced often remains a mystery. In Resilient, Wayne Simpson’s first book of photography, readers will encounter a collection of portraits accompanied by individual stories of inspiration, tragedy, and humanitarianism. The book’s overall narrative is an emotional journey in which readers will inevitably see aspects of themselves in the stories of some truly remarkable individuals.

      With compassion and respect, Wayne Simpson has befriended individuals and discovered personal stories such as an 89-year-old homeless man’s struggle to survive, an 18-year search for a lost brother, a man’s 40-year devotion to building a ten thousand square foot nuclear fallout shelter, and many more. Intertwined with each story is the subnarrative of the photographer learning who he is as each connection is forged.

      Always compelling and at times haunting, Simpson’s portraits keep storytelling at the forefront. The atmosphere and mood are often crafted with multiple studio lights on location. Many of Simpson’s portraits are graced with intricate details, each adding additional layers of complexity to the portrait and in turn making each portrait a visual story on its own.

      Bio

      Wayne Simpson is a professional photographer originating from Aamjiwnaang First Nation and from Lindsay, Ontario, who specializes in dramatic portraiture and landscape photography. Whether he is photographing a person or a place, Simpson’s ultimate goal is to create images that evoke emotion and a sense of mystery. Exceptionally executed, his portraits hold a mythic quality and hint at a deeper story, beckoning the viewer to wonder about the subject’s life and experience. He actively seeks out many of his subjects and builds a rapport with them before creating a portrait. Simpson’s signature and award-winning style has firmly established him in the Canadian photography scene. As an educator, he conducts portrait and landscape workshops both at home and throughout Canada, and he is a proud contributor to OFFBEAT, one of the nation’s leading photography communities. His work has been published in such magazines as Outdoor Photography, Outdoor Photography Canada, Photo Life, Canadian Geographic, Legion, League, and Canadian Rockies Annual. He lives in Elora, Ontario.

      Praise for Resilient:

      “With this riveting, heart-wrenching collection of images, Wayne Simpson goes well beyond the pixels. While the portraits alone showcase Simpson’s masterful photographic abilities and leave us reeling in awe, the accompanying stories give the readers a window into what has transpired for these remarkable subjects. Resilient is not just a sensational display of cutting-edge, moving portrait photographs; it’s a journey we undertake, through the lives and experiences of others, thanks to the courage, creativity and inquisitiveness of the artist.”
      —Paul Zizka, author of Aloft: Canadian Rockies Aerial Photography, The Canadian Rockies: Rediscovered, Grandeur of the Canadian Rockies and several other bestselling photo collections

      “Spending time with this book reminded me of the words of St. John: ‘The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it’.”

      Description

      Photographer Dave Brosha’s follow up to Northern Light accentuates the beautiful, fragile, and remote landscapes of Earth’s southernmost regions.

      When one thinks of the most remote place on Earth, Antarctica is a strong candidate for many people. It's a remarkably isolated place, a place with some of the harshest weather systems on the planet, and a place that is both prohibitively expensive and logistically challenging to travel to. Despite this challenging persona, Antarctica is home to some of the most stunning beauty on the planet - home to an abundance of thriving and diverse wildlife populations and incredibly dramatic landscapes.

      In this collection of photographs from Antarctica and it's geographic neighbours, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, respected nature and portrait photographer and writer, Dave Brosha, turns his attention to documenting one of the "ends of the Earth" in the hope of bringing attention and focus to one of our world's most pristine and beautiful areas.

      Praise for Southern Light:

      “These remarkable images bring home the fact that the Antarctic is in some ways a different planet, full of remarkable lights, shapes, forms; and at the same time it is deeply, beautifully connected with the rest of the globe’s biology and climate. Understanding its unique place is crucial to making progress in protecting the Earth.”
      —Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature; Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet; and numerous other bestselling titles

      “What Dave Brosha seems to see and understand and convey is the unique quality of light in one of our planet’s most spectacular locations. Well done!”
      —Camille Seaman, author of Melting Away: A Ten-Year Journey Through Our Endangered Polar Regions

      “I was transported to a place I didn’t want to leave! This book is visual poetry… a journey to an area so beautiful it has been known to transform people’s lives. Dave Brosha has a unique way of bridging the gap between traditional photography and a more modern twist on the art form. His images are sometimes simple and classically beautiful, while at other times fresh and truly innovative. Seeing this place through Dave’s eyes is a gift, and I’m thankful to have this book as a reminder of the beauty that exists in the world and our collective responsibility to care for it.”
      —Wayne Simpson, author of Resilient: The Portraiture of Wayne Simpson

      “In Southern Light, photographer Dave Brosha builds upon his earliest inspiration from his Arctic roots to delve beyond the literal as he reflects on the essence of a place, transporting us on a journey with him through the “Holy Trinity” of the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula. Through the visual themes of Wildlife, Land & Sea, and Black & White, his photographs evoke a feeling for this most unique and important natural region of our world.”
      —Scott Forsyth, author of The Wild Coasts of Canada

      “To anyone who has had the privilege to journey to these remote and pristine landscapes, as well as to those of us aspiring to go there, the journey itself is very much an important component of the experience, as Dave Brosha brilliantly captures in the final theme of Documentary. For many of us these pages may be the closest we will ever get to these uniquely beautiful locations, and through his portrait of them we become intimately acquainted with ‘Southern Light.’”
      —Scott Forsyth author of The Wild Coasts of Canada

      Southern Light showcases Dave Brosha’s astonishing skill set as a photographer. Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falklands are difficult destinations to photograph and do not offer the artist much freedom to roam, nor much time to go through his creative process. Yet Dave Brosha possesses a gift for assessing photographic opportunities within a fraction of a second, and adapting his approach, which makes him perfectly suited to capture these stunning and remote environments and bring them to the world. His legendary versatility as a photographer is on full display in this compelling collection of images.”
      —Paul Zizka, author of Aloft: Canadian Rockies Aerial Photography; The Canadian Rockies: Rediscovered; Grandeur of the Canadian Rockies; and several other bestselling photo collections

      Southern Light is a visually arresting showcase of the wonderful talents of professional photographer Dave Brosha. Brosha’s images tell stories that compel you and leave you wanting more, it’s almost impossible to open this book and not flip the page to see what’s next. He is a master at combining genres, from wildlife to documentary to black and white; his skills as a photographer have never been so evident as within these pages.”
      —John E. Marriott, author of The Kootenay Wolves: Five Years Following a Wild Wolf Pack and photographer of The Pipestone Wolves: The Rise and Fall of a Wolf Family, by Günther Bloch

      In Southern Light, Dave Brosha presents amazing photographs depicting the beauty of Antarctica, an extraordinary continent that is at the same time so rough and hardy, yet so vulnerable to worldwide human activity. The photos are so authentic and familiar to me that I almost thought Dave might have been on my own trip to that southern continent. His collection of images, taken during several voyages, is sure to inspire and delight.”
      —Marlis Butcher, author of Park Bagger: Adventures in the Canadian National Parks

      "Antarctica remains the world’s most extreme destination, which means most travelers won’t make it there in person. Along with scenes of South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, Southern Light brings the frigid landscapes of the world’s southernmost destination to the cozy comforts of the coffee table. Expect plenty of magical ice formations, glassy waters and sweeping skies, but prepare for the wildlife of these remote regions to steal the most hearts."
      —Brandon Schultz, Forbes
