John Annerino is the author and photographer of seventeen distinguished photography books and thirty-two single-artist calendars, including Arizona Wild & Scenic and Ancient America and the awardwinning books Desert Light, Indian Country, Grand Canyon Wild, Canyons of the Southwest, The Wild Country of Mexico, and Roughstock: The Toughest Events in Rodeo.

In this celebration of Arizona's first 100 years, Annerino has captured its mythical quality. Each stunning image is accompanied by carefully selected quotes from records of early travelers, writers and photographers. Their words mingle with the impact of Annerino's photography to produce a gorgeous reflection. A fascinating introductory essay, weaving together human and natural history, legends, and personal reflections lends the astounding photography further depth.

A stunning collection of photographs from America's most notorious "no-man's land." John Annerino, renowned photographer and author of America's Southwest and Old Mexico, risked life and limb to venture on foot into the most remote, abandoned, and chillingly silent tracts of the Painted, Sonoran, Mojave, and Chihuahuan deserts on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border. His quest: to capture desert light from the highest summits, the starkest deserts, and the deepest canyons; and to convey to those who dare not follow in his footsteps the primal beauty of these impossibly rugged, uninhabited lands --these despoblados -- in evocative essays and haunting photographs. Regarded long-ago by ruthless Spanish conquistadors and gold-seeking settlers as terra incógnita, "unknown land," this region remains largely the same as it was while inhabited by indigenous peoples, who viewed its luminous landscape through very different eyes. To them, the beautiful sierras and captivating stone hoodoos were sacred and familiar, and revered for their omniscient majesty. Annerino uncannily portrays this awe-striking, sublime landscape through both sets of eyes in Desert Light.

(This is a combined review of John Annerino's three photo essay books: *Grand Canyon Wild*, *Desert Light*, and *Canyon Country*)

John Annerino knows the desert southwest well and his writing about it is enjoyable and informative; and, this holds true with *Grand Canyon Wild: A Photographic Journey*, *Desert Light: a Photographer's Journey Through America's Desert Southwest*, and *Canyon Country: A Photographic Journey*. In addition to his nature writing on the topic, he has also published a couple of useful guides to photographing in the Southwest.

But, even with pretty text, I can't recommend any of these three books. Why? Because the photography is just not that good. This may not be a critic on Annerino's photography...but, at the same time it might. He has a good eye for composition, but what you can't tell is whether he has a good eye for color reproduction or a good eye for light in general. I want to believe that the less than stellar - less than average actually - photographic reproductions in two of these books (*Grand Canyon Wild* and *Desert Light*) is down right horrible! In *Canyon Country*, it is better than the other two, but definitely not great.

So, why is that? Is it just plain bad printing in China? Is it bad design work by the publisher? Is it just average photographic skills of the author? Probably, a combination of all three. Even just the covers of *Grand Canyon Wild* and *Desert Light* are enough to question the capabilities of the designer for these books - they are weak images with average lighting and no pop whatsoever. The cover of *Canyon Country* is muxh better than the other two - so much so, that it must have been designed by a different person. The fact that *Canyon Country* is better on the inside and outside says that it was better produced altogether.

Since I live in the landscape that is the subject of these three books and I am a photographer myself, I can tell you that some of the scenes photographed in these books look better to the naked eye...in the middle of the day when the light is washed out and flat.

If you just want to read the good text, then find them at your local bookstore and enjoy with a cup of coffee while sitting in the store's comfortable seating. But, definitely pass on purchasing, especially if you are looking for great photography from the Colorado Plateau.

2 stars = Don't bother, clean your bathroom instead.
3 stars = Wasn't a waste of time, but it was time wasted.
4 stars = Good book, but not life altering.
5 stars = This book changed my world in at least some small way.

Desert Light, A Photographer's Journey through America's Desert Southwest by photojournalist author John Annerino is his finest work to date. He has captured through his photographs and essays America's Outback - the unseen, mysterious, remote and breathtakingly beautiful country of the Southwest Desert land. To photograph these scenes he climbed to the top of this world where he discovered it's majesty and secrets. The light of the desert illuminates the photos portraying the landscape in grandeaur and awe. The Southwest has always called to Annerino to be it's messenger of hidden places and stories as in his work on The Grand Canyon but in Desert Light he has taken risks higher than ever before and been rewarded with a vision that is spellbindngly gorgeous. We can only be thankful that he dared to venture to these uninhabited vistas to portray this majestic no-man's land.
