Earth and Mars

A Reflection

The University of Arizona Press

Earth and Mars relates the life story of two planets, celestial siblings in space. The book is a fusion of art and science, a blend of images and essays celebrating the successful creation of our life-sustaining planet. A collection of simple and profoundly beautiful forms, Earth and Mars provides a context to appreciate the common forces responsible for these haunting shapes as well as the divergent paths that led to an Earth teeming with life-forms, while its sibling, Mars, is seemingly devoid of all life.

Bears Ears

Views from a Sacred Land

George F. Thompson Publishing

This book captures the singular beauty of Bears Ears country in all seasons, its textural subtleties portrayed alongside the drama of expansive landscapes and skies, deep canyons, spires, and towering mesas. To photographer Stephen E. Strom’s sensitive eyes, a scrub oak on a hillside or a pattern in windswept sand is as essential to capturing the spirit of the landscape as the region’s most iconic vistas. Years from now, this book may serve as either a celebration of the foresight of visionary leaders or as an elegy for what was lost.

Death Valley

Painted Light

George F. Thompson Publishing

Attracted by the distinctive topography and light of Death Valley, Stephen Strom, a renowned professor of astrophysics, began regularly traveling there some thirty-five years ago. His acute eye for abstract takes in the vast, colorful sweep of land and sky as well as the land’s myriad details that give the area its distinctive and varied character. Strom’s photographs are complemented by Alison Hawthorne Deming’s original sequence of poems, written for this book, that are as luminous and detailed as the images themselves. And Rebecca A. Senf’s perceptive essay situates Strom’s work within the canon of those photographers who have inspired and mentored him, including Ansel Adams and Harry Callahan.
