On Friday, December 6, photographer Rick Schafer will be signing his new book Oregon IV from 5 to 8 p.m. at Waucoma Bookstore, 212 Oak Street, Hood River.
Oregon IV is a superb work that carries on the photographic tradition begun in 1968 with the book Oregon. This new volume is the result of five years of work by the 40-year-old Schafer, stepson and protege of the late Ray Atkeson.
Schafer's images convey familiar scenes and evocative places such as the deep, mysterious caves of the Siskiyou Mountains, the perfect clarity of Crater Lake, the brilliant fields of wildflowers in the Cascade Range, and the majesty of Multnomah Falls. From Seaside to the Wallowas, from The Dalles to Klamath Lake, the splendor of Oregon is captured in this inspiring book.
Award-winning author Craig Lesley offers great description to the photos.
Refreshments will be served at this free event and there will be a drawing for a complimentary copy of the book.
