Review: Amazing Arizona, Fine Art Travel Photography by Matt Cohen

From a talented and creative photographer, armchair travellers will find this whimsical book a sunny escape to a land of time’s own record. Cohen has researched and gathered a collection of fresh views of old places. Though it is not a guide book, an indexed map is very helpful to refer to as readers make plans of their own.
The diversity of Arizona is on full display. Little known places like the Two Guns Ghost Town and the Gold King Mine show up in brilliant colors. Cohen takes in landscapes, architecture, art exhibits and urban scenes using unusual montages, and creating composite photos using PhotoShop.
Take time to browse and you’ll encounter some fun bits interspersed with interesting history and well planned photos. -Claire Rogers
