“Ever since I was a child it seemed to me that the wilderness was my true home. I was separated from it by circumstances beyond my control. Schools, jobs, social and personal obligations, all bound me to a life apart from my true desire.
Theforest, the desert, the mountains, the wild night sky, the wind: these were what I longed for, what I dreamt about, what I planned for in my free moments.”
— from the artist’s prefaceto “Landscape and Desire: Wilderness Photographs by John Anderson.”
