Shenandoah: Views of Our National Park (University
of Virginia Press) is the only published collection
of black and white photographs devoted to the Shenandoah
National Park. The work contains 51 images, made
over more than 20 years, by Hullihen Williams Moore.
From grand vistas and waterfalls to the delicate unfurling of new ferns, these duotone prints capture
the singular appeal that attracts more than 1 million visitors
to the park each year. The 96-page monograph measures
10 by 9.5 inches. In two essays, Moore addresses
the natural and human history of the park as well
as his own personal experience of it, including stories
behind several individual photographs.
In addition to the paper and standard hardcover
editions, a Deluxe Limited Edition of 425 signed and
numbered copies was printed and bound with a slipcase.
Four hundred copies are each accompanied by one signed
original print, chosen
from the following four images: Appalachian Trail
and Mist; Baldface Mountain Overlook, 1988;
Moormans River, Sugar Hollow, Spring; and
Overall Run Falls.
One hundred prints of each of the four images are available
for selection on a first-come, first-served basis. Twenty-five
Master Set copies are accompanied by prints
of all four images. Prints are approximately 11 x 14
inches, mounted on a 16 x 20 inch
museum board with an overmat, and signed by the artist.
Ten additional copies of each set have been reserved
for the exclusive use of the photographer and are identified
as Artist's Proofs.
In March, 2004, the Shenandoah: Views of Our National Park received an Honorable Mention from the Association of Partners for Public Lands in their 2004 Media and Partnership Awards.
