The photography featured in LABYRINTH SUBLIME is classic Keough — inspiring, powerful and, above all, aesthetic. Sensitive to the ordinary and the extraordinary, the obvious and the ephemeral, Pat and Rosemarie focus their attention on both man and nature, the latter being dominant.
LABYRINTH SUBLIME: THE INSIDE PASSAGE presents three portfolios representing the southern, central, and northern stretches of The Inside Passage: respectively, The Salish Sea, The Great Bear Raincoast and The Tongass. Included are 340 images of sea, forest, waterfalls, mountains, glaciers, icebergs, fern, mists, rainbows, bear, deer, whale, totem poles, petroglyphs, fishing boats, yachts, cities, villages, indigenous people, abandoned salmon canneries, forgotten saw mills, sunrise, moonrise... and so much more.
An amazing collection of images.
I can’t believe the breadth and variety.
I was struck almost immediately by the role of humans.
Unlike ANTARCTICA where all the people seem
like visitors (or maybe even interlopers),
in LABYRINTH SUBLIME the human community
seems as much a part of the landscape
as the nature around it. ”
