California landscape photographer Stephen Joseph, known for his signature panoramas that capture California's distinctive geographic regions and rich, natural beauty, debuts his new book Mount Diablo, A Story of Place and Inspiration. Joseph will speak about photographing Contra Costa County's celebrated Mount Diablo, and books will be available for purchase and signing.
Mount Diablo, A Story of Place and Inspiration, features 214 panoramic photographs that celebrate the wonderment of Mount Diablo’s extraordinary lands. Accompanying Joseph’s creations are four inspiring essays written by leaders in conservation and humankind’s cultural connections to natural lands: Seth Adams, Land Conservation Director, Save Mount Diablo; Edwin Bernbaum, PhD, The Mountain Institute; Edward “Ted” Sortwell Clement, Jr., Executive Director, Save Mount Diablo; and Robert Doyle, General Manager, East Bay Regional Park District. Together, these thoughtful voices explore the diverse ways natural lands, and Mount Diablo specifically, touch our lives and inspire us to care about our environment and each other. The essays’ authors and the book’s editor, Linda Rimac Colberg, will join Joseph in the discussion.
Mount Diablo, A Story of Place and Inspiration, is sponsored by Save Mount Diablo, East Bay Regional Park District, J. Rockcliff Realtors, Bishop Ranch, and Claudia & Scott Hein.
