Definitely Chase These Waterfalls

Mark your calendars, all.

One month from today my friend and fellow LHS alum Troy Hess has another gorgeous new book of photography releasing on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.

I had an opportunity to preview his new work ahead of time, so here’s what I had to say about Waterfalls of Wisconsin. Hint: It’s absolutely spectacular.

“While there is no shortage of gorgeous images online these days, Troy Hess has a way of capturing a subject that forces you to consider it in an entirely new light. Let’s just say “predictable” or “been there, seen that” isn’t what he sees through his lens.

For example, as a native of northern Wisconsin, waterfalls aren’t the most obvious choice for a collection of photos highlighting the natural beauty of the Badger State. Trees? Yes. Farmland? Absolutely. But aside from the lakes, Wisconsin’s waterways aren’t what immediately spring to mind.

And really, that’s just one of the many joys of Hess’s second book, Waterfalls of Wisconsin: The Wild Waters of Intrigue. While I’ve spent a huge chunk of my life in the area, I experienced so much for the first time through these striking images and descriptions that can’t help but draw you in.

With personal stories and historical facts scattered throughout, Waterfalls of Wisconsin is a pleasure to read and gaze at. It may even provide some major road trip inspiration as you discover new gems in the upper midwest. While I thought it wasn’t possible for Hess to top his phenomenal debut Abandoned Wisconsin: The Demise of America’s Dairyland, he continues to surprise and delight with Waterfalls of Wisconsin.”
