LINDE WAIDHOFER / WESTERN EYE 

A NEW SERIES OF AFFORDABLE

PHOTO PUBLICATIONS

FOLIO-BOOKS


It's no secret that I love books, especially photo books, but I have always been a bit uncomfortable about the cost of a large, beautifully printed, hard-bound book. My new FolioBooks seem like the answer. I have been taking advantage of the latest print-on-demand technology to create a series of small (8 x 8 inch) and extremely affordable photo books. These books are printed by an innovative online printer, MagCloud.com. Clicking on any FolioBook cover image (below) will take you to a page on the MagCloud web site, where you can preview the entire contents of the book, and then if you wish, order your own copy which will be printed, bound, and sent to you directly from MagCloud.

Easy to buy—

Easy to share—

Easy to enjoy—

Stay tuned, more FolioBooks of my favorite images are coming soon.

EL NORTE

Chile's far north


40 pages, 8 x 8 inches, softbound

$15 plus shipping.


The Atacama desert in Northern Chile is known as the driest place on earth. This high desert landscape is nothing short of surreal. Traveling north from Santiago, in springtime, you discover one surprise after another: carpets of brilliant flowers along the coast, mysterious often ghostly formations of eroded rock, and halfway between altiplano and pure desert the worlds highest geyser field hidden under soaring Andean volcanos.

EL SUR / THE SOUTH

Chilean Patagonia from north to south

 

60 pages, 8 x 8 inches, softbound

$20 plus shipping.

 

A visual journey through Chilean Patagonia,and the wild southern landscapes to the west of the Andes. More than 2,000 kilometers , north to south, from Puerto Montt all the way to Tierra del Fuego and the tip of the continent. An ever-changing parade of forests and fjords, peaks and glaciers, national parks, pristine archipelagos and wind-blown steppes.

SKIES OF THE SOUTH / CIELOS SUREÑOS

the unique skies of  Central Patagonia


42 pages, 8 x8 inches, softbound

$15 plus shipping.


Patagonia is definitely Big Sky country. The sky above Patagonia is a non-stop theater, always in motion, always changing. You look up and you can’t begin to guess what you will see next. This FolioBook is an all-color collection of Linde’s most spectacular skyscrapes from almost 20 years of  patagonian photography. These are skies filled with colors and forms and fantasies that you will never forget.

LOOK UP

SKY HIGH DRAMA

AND OVERHEAD BEAUTY

 

30 pages, 8X8 inches, softbound

$15 plus shipping.

 

Surreal black-and-white photography of the unique cloudscapes that haunt the skies above the peaks and lakes of Chilean patagonia. S0mehow, without color, the strange clouds and skies showcased in this FolioBook become even stranger,  even more surprising, and even more mysterious. 

VALPO

the street art of Valparaiso


40 pages, 8 x8 inches, softbound

$15 plus shipping.


Valparaiso—affectionally known as Valpo—is Chile’s second city, second largest, second most important, both commercially and politically, but for lovers of street art, Valpo, is number one—a permanent festival of street art, a museum of street art with steep and winding galleries, with no entrance fees. With its surreal fantasies of painted murals, painted doors, painted cement stairs and walls, and Valpo takes your breath away and steals your heart.

TREES OF THE SOUTH

fantastic forests of South America

 

52 pages, 8X8 inches, softbound

$20 plus shipping.

 

The forests of Chile's far south are  simply unique. From the oldest species on the continent, the Araucaria, that coexisted with dinosaurs,  to the many species of  Nothofagus Beech that color the lanscape in autumn, to the giant Alerce, South America's counterpart to North America's Sequoia Gigantia, these little known forests are full of mystery, full of color, full of pure beauty.

                                    Sol y Sombra

                                                     PATAGONIA

                                                                     Light & Shadow


50 pages, 8 x 8 inches, softbound

$20 plus shipping.


In this FolioBook Linde trades brilliant color for high drama. Her first all black-and-white monograph presents the wild landscape at the very 'bottom' of South America in monochrome compositions ranging from stark to subtle, but always surprising, always new. This is Patagonia as you have never seen it before. A powerful, new, and wild vision of one of the planet's wildest places.

SANGRE DE CRISTO

Colordo's high desert mountains


50 pages, 8 x 8 inches, softbound

$20 plus shipping


Colorado's San Luis Valley is a breathtaking landscape of contrasts and contradictions: the tallest Sand Dunes in North America, tucked beneath serried ramparts of fourteen-thousand foot peaks., an arid lanscape, a true desert, that nonetheless contains more than 50% of Colrado's wetlands. This 8,000 foot high valley of distant horizons is Linde Waidhofer's adopted home and she has photographed it in every season with patience and passion

GOING TO THE LIGHT


42 pages, 8 x 8 inches, softbound

$15 plus shipping


This is the slightly smaller,  softbound edition of one of my favorite books, also available hardbound.


Going to the Light is the visual story of a dawn flight across the Northern Ice Field of Chilean Patagonia. A landscape of pure ice, stretching from the crest of the southern Andes all the way to the Pacific: a world without people, not a soul, not a track, not a skier or a vehicle, as far away from our modern world as one can get. A world only a handful of people have ever seen
