The publication of this book of photographs and travelogue speaks of a world almost lost to architectural history. His homage to the region’s architecture proclaims to the world that no one can understand Russia without beginning in the north. Recommended for library collections including Russian architecture, art, history and culture. Blair A. Ruble, author of Washington's U Street: A Biography). In this combination of travelogue, diary, and history, William Craft Brumfield brings to life a northern territory which, in many respects, subsumes the ancient Russia of hallowed tradition, harsh winter, and human steadfastness.

The Brooks Range, one of the most remote and least-disturbed wildernesses of North America, is immense and inaccessible enough to earn a nearly mythic reputation. Dennis Witmer’s splendid volume, Far to the North: Photographs from the Brooks Range explores the limits of the tree line that juts through the southern edge of the range, revealing northern peaks and valleys bare of vegetation and glossed over by a softening snow that can arrive at any time of the year. A magnificent glimpse at nature in its most pristine and raw form, the epic photography featured in Far to the North will be a welcome addition to the collection of any explorer or lover of the northern landscape.

In keeping with Dennis Witmer's earlier projects, his latest book, "Front Street, Kotzebue," follows his tradition of quiet, carefully composed images that reflect upon the sense of place.

The images seem composed as a reminder of the constant internal battle between the beauty, remoteness, and native industry, versus the desecration, trash, haphazardness, and lack of respect for controls that seem the hallmarks of communities like Kotzebue.

In this beautifully printed book of large-format, black-and-white images, Witmer's photographs describe those conflicts precisely, with both candor and affection. It is at once both a loving description of this tiny little corner of Alaska, and a cautionary tale of a community living on the edge.

This is a tale tempered by the extraordinary beauty and unforgiving relation with nature, with the reality that we can't leave only footprints. Coupled with a classic use of large format photographic technique applied with full mastery of the process, this book is a quiet, contemplative, and sublime experience.

The images captured between the covers are beautiful and honest. We see how the residents live in this remote coastal village, and in so doing get a brief glimpse into their lives.

Front Street, Kotzebue preserves images and memories of Kotzebue, Alaska in the late 1970's. Kotzebue is an Inupiaq Eskimo village on the shores of the Chukchi Sea, but it is also a regional center for all the nearby smaller villages. There are no roads to or from Kotzebue. Winter travel is by snowmachine, airplane and still a few dog teams. Summer travel is by airplane (including jets) and boats. Hence, the importance of Front Street, where snowmachines arrive in winter from across the sea ice and boats arrive and depart all summer (late June is ice out, mid October is freeze up.) Dennis Witmer is my friend. I often saw him lugging his old tripod-mounted, early 1900's contact cameras around Kotzebue summer and winter in all kinds of weather, mostly very cold and windy. The photographer is tough. The photographs warm my heart. Jerald Stroebele, Anchorage, Alaska

This book is nothing short of remarkable. Dennis has made a distinguished career for himself in Alaska, and we are indebted to his steady eye and craftsmanship. With Kotzebue, he has produced a book that sets a new standard for photography books on Alaska. This book isn't about tourism or easy cliches - it's scope is larger than that.

This book is a must for any discerning collector, or appreciator, of photography.
