American Texture: Canvas from the Sky


American Texture is a national aerial photography work, now the author’s 12th book. Instead of focusing on specific regional subjects as in the past, Garrett Fisher has included images acquired spanning a multi-year period while working on a variety of projects, bringing together a work that covers from the Atlantic Ocean to the glaciers of Montana, with deserts, farmland, wildlife, high mountain peaks, wilderness, open range, lakes, and rivers in between. Containing 151 images focusing on textures and patterns as found in these legendary landscapes, the book reveals unexpected perspectives found within areas better known for scenic landscape imagery, while doing so from the near-field perspective afforded by an old and slow aircraft. Searching for years and thousands of miles for mathematical and artistic beauty as seen from the air, Garrett had an eye for the unusual, from an abnormal angle, of the unexpected. The result was crossing America multiple times, the ground beneath having turned into a canvas from the sky.
