'Treasured Lands: a Photographic Odyssey through America's National Parks'

 

Presented by the Palo Alto Camera Club, photographer QT Luong will discuss his work at an event at the Palo Alto Art Center, 1313 Newell Road, on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 7-9 p.m. The event is free.

QT Luong is a photographer and author known for being the first to photograph all 59 U.S. national parks -- in large format. He is featured in the film "The National Parks: America's Best Idea," by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan and has been profiled in National Geographic Explorer, Outdoor Photographer and Parks magazines.

His photographs are the subject of several books, including "Treasured Lands," winner of six national book awards.

Long will talk about his adventures photographing with a 5x7 camera, traveling through caves, up cliffs and in boats, often with a 75-pound pack.
