Description

In "Timeless Texas", long-time fans of Laurence Parent's photography will be introduced to a contemplative side of this talented artist, who, for the first time, presents his vision of the Texas landscape in black and white. With a thoughtful introduction by another Texas icon, Elmer Kelton, and a personal note from the photographer, the book unfolds as a tribute to the enduring landscape of Texas, as seen through the lens of someone who knows it well. Like looking at old family photographs, these images remind us of why we miss Texas when we leave it and why certain places remain comforting by their very constancy. Parent's attachments to and recollections of these places come alive in extended captions that capture the adventure, hard work, and funny moments in the life of a professional photographer. By climbing those mountains, chasing those clouds, and taking that quiet pause at a hidden waterfall, Parent has created a Texas chiaroscuro that is bound to captivate all who go with him.show more

Review quote

"Nothing is literally timeless. All things change, but Texas in its vastness offers many places where change has been gentle and easy to abide. Solitude still exists for those who seek it. Solitude is the hallmark of Laurence Parent's magnificent photographs, solitude and the great open Texas sky."show more
