Thirkell, Fred; Scullion, Bob
This award-winning biography by respected postcard historians Fred Thirkell and Bob Scullion pays tribute to photographer Frank Gowen, one of British Columbia's greatest artistic eyes. The book focuses on the life and selected works of Frank Gowen, whose images and name will always be synonymous with the photographic history of Greater Vancouver. Gowen came to Vancouver during the First World War and established himself as "the Stanley Park photographer". Although he travelled throughout British Columbia, many of his finest images are from the parks, streets, and historic sites of the Lower Mainland. Gowen's Greater Vancouver extended from White Rock to the Sunshine Coast, as he explored the playgrounds, edifices, and landmarks of a vibrant West Coast community. 176pp.

Tucker, Toba; Swenzell, Rina; Bush, Alfred L.
166pp.Toba Tucker's expressive portraits honouring Pueblo artists were made over a two-and-a-half year sojourn in the Southwest. These photographs form a record for history and art at the end of the twentieth century and portray Tucker's interest in the individuals and families who pass their artistic traditions from one generation to the next. The portraits reflect the sense of belonging that she so evidently found among the people who welcomed her into their homes, and they attest to her abiding respect and deep appreciation for the native traditions that continue to carry the Pueblo spirit.

Bloomfield, Debra
In 1989 photographer Debra Bloomfield got into her car and headed east from California. Near Oak Creek Canyon in Arizona she began photographing, feeling somehow a part of the landscape through which she travelled. For the next ten years, she would sojourn in the desert and mountain regions of the Southwest three or four times a year, expanding her horizons topographically and spiritually, capturing with her camera a juxtaposition of vast spaces and lonely intimacy inherent in the terrain that surrounded her. In 1997 she found herself in Las Trampas, New Mexico, and discovered through its church and others like it in the northern areas of the state that interior spaces can evoke the same kinds of meanings for her as landscapes do. In both, she felt a sense of place and history, of hope and transformation. At once ethereal and haunting, her images are also transcendent, suggesting a balance between spiritual and secular. 159pp. N.B. Closed tear to top edge of front D/J.
