Hidden in remote areas of Nevada and adjacent states are beautiful rock engravings known as petroglyphs. They record the visions and dreams of ancient Native Americans. Many are thousands of years old, and most are completely unknown to the public; their existence has been kept secret to protect them from vandalism. World-renowned photographer John Wimberley spent ten years searching for these fragile, irreplaceable cultural treasures. During this time he visited more than 100 sites and exposed 5000 large format negatives. His stunning black and white photographs reveal the beauty and profound sacredness of shamanic images in stone.
Evidence of Magic contains 62 superb reproductions of photographs made between 1999-2008, a map of the Great Basin showing regions photographed and an author’s preface.

And I just ordered my copy. This really is the best of photography - beautiful images, recording beautiful (but endangered and disappearing) images. I sometimes wonder what those petroglyph artists would think of today's silver and mineral chip artists. Thank you, John.
