Two-Hearted Oak

The Photography of Roman Loranc

The Central Valley is the heart and soul of Two-Hearted Oak, a collection of photographs by Polish American photographer Roman Loranc. Two-Hearted Oak will delight anyone with an appreciation for nature and the art of photography. Roman Loranc’s visionary reflections are those of a unique artist whose palette captures light and form and transforms them into images reflecting a depth of feeling rarely found in nature photography. It is a fitting homage to the Central Valley.

Two-Hearted Oak is now sold out and out of print.

Why Photographs Work by George Barr

Every photographer, from weekend enthusiast to professional, can learn by studying the "greats". In Why Photographs Work, author/photographer George Barr analyzes 52 striking images by some of the world's top photographers. Accompanying Barr's analysis of each image is an explanation by the photographer describing the circumstances of making the image, including not only the how, but also the why. Also included is each photographer's biography, a reference to his or her websites and publications, and brief technical descriptions of the equipment used in making each image.
