Treasured Lands: The Fifty-Eight U.S. National Parks in Focus
February 20 - October 17, 2010
For the past 15 years, photographer Quang-Tuan Luong has traveled across the United States capturing in photographs the spectacular beauty of our national parks. Luong has single-handedly documented all 58 U.S. national parks, a feat that no other photographer has accomplished. To get his pictures, Luong kayaked through iceberg-laden waters, canoed down wild rivers, scuba-dived tropical seas, climbed to the summit of Mt. McKinley, and frequently trekked the trailless terrain of the backcountry, all while lugging his 75-pound, large-format camera, photo gear, and camping equipment. “Treasured Lands” offers the perspective of a world traveler who is deeply committed to preserving America’s beauty and natural resources.
