  • Lindsborg photographer to sign books

  • No matter where you live, the sun rises and sets. Along its path the light changes — sometimes imperceptibly, always gradually, and sometimes stunningly on its path from dawn to dark and back again.

  • No matter where you live, the sun rises and sets. Along its path the light changes — sometimes imperceptibly, always gradually, and sometimes stunningly on its path from dawn to dark and back again.  
    The new 400-page National Geographic “Dawn to Dark Photographs: The Magic of Light” tells this lush story through the work of National Geographic's best visual storytellers, including Lindsborg's own Jim Richardson.
    Richardson wrote the preface for Dawn to Dark, as well as contributed 19 stunning images and several observations about the qualities of light set in large text.  Richardson also is the book's national media spokesman.
    Richardson will sign copies of Dawn to Dark from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Saturday, November 17, at his Lindsborg studio, Small World Gallery at 127 N. Main Street. The book may be purchased there for $40.
    Few photographers have observed and captured the qualities of light for as many years and for as large an audience as Richardson.  A Kansas native, he is internationally recognized for his 25-plus stories for National Geographic Magazine, including one on Kansas’ Flint Hills.
     Richardson,  just back from a six-week assignment through western Europe, the East and Africa, helped editors refine the book's concept as it was being planned late last year.
     "Photographers note even the smallest change in light," he said.  "Colors change second-by-second when the rising sun is just below the horizon and the setting sun is just above it.
     "I like the idea of a book that teases out the day photographically from some of the best in the business," said Richardson.  "The Earth's cycles of light and dark connect us all."
