An award-winning photographer retraces Thoreau’s Maine journey, with photographs that are "sumptuously beautiful," says The Boston Globe
For the past seven years, the award-winning nature photographer Scot Miller has been capturing on film the journeys that Thoreau made on foot to the Maine Woods between 1846 and 1857. The result is an awe-inspiring pictorial work by a photographer whose outdoor photography is so fine, it is often featured on CBS Sunday Morning
. Scot followed Thoreau so faithfully that he could caption each photo with Thoreau’s own words. (Thoreau’s full text is reproduced.) For those who love nature, or Maine, or catch-your-breath-gorgeous photography, here is a Levenger Press collector’s edition to cherish. Only from Levenger.
Experience a book of nature photography where both words and pictures matter
What makes this Levenger Press book unusual is how seamlessly Scot Miller’s photographs and Thoreau’s narrative flow together. It’s rare to have so many words in a book of nature photography, but Scot has a deep respect for Thoreau’s writing and wished to include Thoreau’s entire Maine Woods narrative, which was originally published in 1864.
