Jon Ortner is based about as far from the landscapes that make up his latest book as you can imagine, and he shows that sometimes the best landscapes come from having an outsider’s perspective
“It’s spiritual, it’s artistic, and it’s scholarly,” Ortner concludes. “And somehow I weave that all together to give my images meaning. And I’ve been lucky enough to find people who understood that. That has been the greatest part of my career. My greatest success has been finding those people. It doesn’t really matter so much how many books get sold. I think what matters ultimately is what art have you created?”
Jon Ortner is also the author and photographer of Buddha, Angkor, Where Every Breath Is A Prayer and Manhattan Dawn And Dusk. To see more of his photography, visit www.ortnerphoto.com. To learn more about Canyon Wilderness, visit www.welcomebooks.com/canyon wilderness and go to Look Inside.
