A Photographer's JourneyBook - 2007
The weather used to be reported after the news; today, it often is the news. Tracking news-making weather, storm chasers seek dramatic images of tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, lightning storms, and other extreme and unusual weather phenomena. News organizations compete to broadcast and publish these images because people care passionately about the weather. Jim Reed is one of Americas most successful and award-winning storm chasers in an era when global climate is changing. His fifteen years of photography documents this change. As the years go by, he sees spring come earlier, summers get hotter, and tornadoes and hurricanes increase in frequency and intensity. InStorm Chaser, a beautiful picture book about some of the most powerfuland sometimes deadlyphenomena in our world, Reed shares his best images and his experiences as he tracks these storms throughout the country.
