A New Form of Beauty: Glen Canyon Beyond Climate Change

Photography by Peter Going

Essays by Peter Friederici

UA Press

Photography Peter Goin has been taking pictures of Glen Canyon for nearly three decades—and in the process, he has tracked how climate change is steadily draining the man-made Glen Canyon Lake. As Friederici writes in one of his essays: "So, here is the real unwritten reason Tim and I were there: to immerse ourselves for a spell in a place of mystery where we would not know what to expect, where in fact the central organizing principle of place was a fundamental unknowability, just as (Western explorer John Wesley) Powell surely knew he was only scratching the surface of the canyon country with his wanderings, his note-takings, his scribblings." The lush photos are extraordinary—and often disturbing—in this spectacular collection.
