Celebrating the colorful legacy of Arizona's first 100 years of statehood, ARIZONA, A Photographic Tribute is a stunning celebration of the state's scenic wonders. Luminous color photographs feature the magnificent landscapes, timeless vistas, majestic landmarks, and cultural icons the Grand Canyon State is known for worldwide, and stunning never-before-seen portraits of the luminous landscapes and hidden gems. John Annerino casts an artist’s, adventurer’s, and scholar’s perspective on a renowned international destination he knows intimately. He weaves the state's natural history, legends, and storied human history into evocative introductory essays. Evocative quotes from early travelers, writers, and photographers, whose own journeys defined their character as much as their prose, poetry, and images later defined our modern perceptions of Arizona’s extraordinary Western landscape also shape this tribute to a magnificent place in the American landscape.
John Annerino is the author and photographer of seventeen distinguished photography books and thirty-two single-artist calendars, including Arizona Wild & Scenic and Ancient America and the awardwinning books Desert Light, Indian Country, Grand Canyon Wild, Canyons
of the Southwest, The Wild Country of Mexico, and Roughstock: The Toughest Events in Rodeo. John’s credits include Arizona Highways Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, Life, México Desconocido, Newsweek, People, Scientific American, Time, Travel & Leisure, and other prestigious clients worldwide.
