Rocky Mountains, a Self – Portrait
At eight-years-old Kent Gunnufson photographed Lower Yosemite Falls with his father’s manual camera. After graduating from college, he sacrificed his professional career to work the construction trades in the harsh, cold environment at 10,000 feet in order to ski and pursue alpine photography.
In Rocky Mountains – A Self-Portrait, not only does Gunnufson offer an inside look at the “golden years” of the ski community’s past, but also takes us on his personal journey to master the dramatic B&W landscape.
Quotes from the creative community paired with images not only entertain, but reinforce the path of the author. Minor White states a postulate of photography that “…all photographs are self-portraits.”
Book available the summer of 2021.
