Puget Sound is the beautiful waterway that defines the Western Washington. Art Wolfe, the Seattle-born photographer who has traveled the world to capture landscape and animals on film, turns to the place he knows best for a book of new images. From Olympia in the south to the San Juan Islands, from the foothills of the Cascade Range to the face of the Olympic Mountains, this is an exceptionally picturesque region. Wolfe brings a sense of intimate landscape to his views of this place, as he explores hidden estuaries and beaches, lush river deltas, undulating pastures, and of course the animated shapes and patterns of water. This is a settled land, and the photographer finds beauty in unique buildings and vessels that lend character to Puget Sound. Other books and photographers have taken Puget Sound as their subject, but none express the personality and the experience of the region as effectively as do these 150 Art Wolfe originals.
