Freeman Patterson's Portraits of Earth, now appearing in a revised edition with a new introduction, is an expression of Patterson's vision of Earth. Combining 114 remarkable photographs with a compelling text, he takes readers behind the lens of the camera so that they begin to see the Earth through his eyes, to sense its natural designs, its lines, its textures. It is a compelling photographic portrait of this planet we call Earth. freeman patterson lives at Shamper's Bluff, New Brunswick near his childhood home.
