A native son of Utah, photographer Willie Holdman’s devotion to his home state is evident in every photograph in his Utah: Mountains to Deserts book collection. Willie takes us with him to some of Utah’s highest peaks, as well as its lower deserts; we experience its well known national and state parks and monuments alongside its remote expanse and most isolated settings.
