He is, quite simply, one of the world's best photographers.

Now, in a mid-career retrospective that ranges over 30 years ofsuperb photography, Freeman Patterson reveals the sources of his creativity, from his early years on his family's New Brunswick farm, to his exploration of North American landscapes, to his imaginative odysseys in other continents. ShadowLight looks outward to the images and patterns that capture a photographer's interest and inward to the symbols and dreams that feed the imagination. Combining 100 of Patterson's favorite images with an evocative text, ShadowLight takes readers behind that feed the imagination. Combining 100 of Patterson's favorite images with an evocative text, ShadowLight takes readers behind the photographers to a deeper appreciation of his craft. By decoding the nature of photography and revealing the ways in which his own visual sense works, Patterson expands our understanding of "the art of seeing".
ShadowLight: A Photographer's Life is a book for many people. Photographers of every ability will be drawn to Patterson's discussions of design, the importance of light and color and techniques of composition. Lovers of nature will immediately connect with Patterson's deeply emotional and spiritual commitment to the preservation of our planet. All those who are touched by the artistry of superb photography and a man's passion to see the world in surprising new ways will enjoy this book again and again.
