Words and pictures come together in this book about the life and photography of George Stranahan, physicist, professor, rancher, founder of Flying Dog brewery [and Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey], philanthropist, former head of Aspen Community School, and friend of Hunter S. Thompson and Ralph Steadman. Starting out by imitating the work and subject matter of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, Stranahan grew into his own idiosyncratic style. “As I look at my photos now,” he says, “I think that perhaps they are the serious work of my life.” (Cornell Alumni Magazine, March/April 2010)
