About This Book Michael Williams has spent more time in the mountains than most people you will ever meet. Since the age of 12 he has made it his job to document the Cathedrals of the Sierra Nevada Range. After being inspired by the stillness and grace of these gem-like peaks, he began to explore the massive expanse of the Himalaya. Soon his curiosity about the culture and the many ethnic groups he met surpassed his need to climb. So from Eastern Nepal to Ladahk, Zanskar, and Kashmir the viewer will see a growing passion for capturing moments in the lives of these wonderful people. With the same simple style Michael records the stories of the American West, Police and Firefighters. He then makes an abrupt left turn into the surreal by creating interesting and evocative compositions using everyday objects, flowers, and traditional figure studies. Join us w and share a fascinating tour through this strange bright world as captured by Michael.
