"Wet Land Voices" explores man's connection to our natural enviroment and the visceral language between man and nature. These photographs are explorations of the feeling of connection and sense of resonance with our planet, and as such they make an emphatic statement supporting preservation of our enviroment in a pristine state. There are several quotations used throughout the book, including Charles Wright, former Pultizer Prize winner, D.D.Lawrence, Ruth Bernhard, noted Photographer, Robert Pirsig, and Dr. Richard Zakia. This book contains fifty 8x10 negative large format black & white photographs of the Florida Wetlands. The photographs are tritone with spot varnish, printed on Aberdeen 100 pound weight."This book is an obvious labor of love by a committed photographer with a distinct personal vision. Most self-publisged books are a dreary lot, and a reviewer begins to fell that they were self-published because no publisher would touch them. This is certainly not the case here. I don't know Dienst, but I would suspect from the lavish printing and binding that he self-published because he wanted to ensure his vision survived intact in the transition to printed form. It certainly looked like he succeeded. These photographs have obviously been made with time and great care. The photographer tells us that he uses 8/10 and 4/5 cameras for his work. That alone requires more patience than most photographers have today. Not only does he use these big, cumbersome cameras, but he uses them to great effect. The images are exceptional, and certainly among the best landscape and nature work I have seen. Dienst has a wonderful eye and a unique vision which certainly deserves to be better known. Lovers of fine black and white photography would be remiss not to add this book to their collection.
