A book of fine-art photography featuring the visual history of California.

2022 BRONZE Winner for Photography, Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards

A Country Called California traces the development of the Golden State from the nineteenth century on, through to its emergence as the fifth largest economy in the world--all as seen through the eyes of photographers whose names are synonymous with fine art photography: Carleton E. Watkins, Dorothea Lange, Eadward Muybridge, Will Connell, Edward Weston, Max Yavno, A.C. Vroman, Mabel Watson, and many more. Author Stephen White, a longtime photography gallerist and collector, has curated the book to perfection, capturing the California that is its own country, the light that has captivated every photographer's eye.
