I was recently informed by the Virginia Historical Society in Richmond, Virginia that the present exhibition of my Appalachian images will be replaced by a different selection of originals from the Jeffers' collection. The present exhibition is scheduled to run through January 28, 2013.

The exhibition has drawn so much favorable attention that it was decided by the museum staff that the show would be extended by several additional months. THE SECOND ROTATION OPENS FEBRUARY 11, 2013 MONDAY MORNING AND RUNS THROUGH MAY 26 OF 2013. 

This image was recently sent to me by a friend from the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

APPALACHIAN IMAGES  Photographs by Jack Jeffers 

Published by Radford University Art Museum 2005

I still have several dozen new books available from this printing, and they are priced at $25 plus $5 shipping.  They are all signed by the artist. This printing has been showing  up on the Internet as a rare book, which I find to be of interest. Also a bit pricey.

To view a larger image of these two books, left click on the above photograph.

And, as you will note below, Mr. Ehrlicher has given it a big thumbs up.

5.0 out of 5 stars An American showpiece-timeless era, May 28, 2011

This review is from: Appalachian Images - Photographs by Jack Jeffers (Paperback)
I bought the book. What an endless joy to review the timeless photos of Jack Jeffers. The Appalachian people and landscapes he photographs in black and white are so beautiful, that one can look and feel the images. Although, so many of his images were taken in the 1970's and 1980's, they look like they could have been taken back in the 1920's, so rustic they seem. The latter part of the book includes photographic images from his current home of Wyoming and they capture the beauty of that state. Jack Jeffers is a towering figure in photography. I recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone who enjoys nature and a timeless era.

APPALACHIAN BYWAYS    Published 1984 

There was a press run of five thousand copies when I was working at Radford University, and most of those books have found new homes. I have maybe a hundred left.  I also make it a point to sign each book.

This price of this book is $25.00 plus $5 for shipping.

This image was made a few miles to the NE of Montrose, Colorado. You don't have to go very far from home to find this common desert dweller. To me, they are lovely trees to photograph and each one has a character of it's own.

I made this image one chilly morning during the winter when the shadow was strung out across the hillside. I was struck by the simplicity of the setting, and that is one of the things I look for when making photographs.
