Taking a Look at This Land

Jack Spencer started looking at America through the lens of a camera in 2003.

The result is a book, This Land (you can take a inside) published this year by the University of Texas Press.

Here are some images he took.

Some potential images overwhelmed him. Washington Post writer May-Ying Lam notes that "On occasion, (Spencer) encountered places where he felt there was no way to do justice to the experience of being there. 'You don't even bother with the camera. You're just completely humbled by how beautiful it is.'"

There is an essay about Mr. Spencer here.
