Monte Nagler's Michigan

Michigan-Book-CoverTaking the State of Michigan’s motto to heart—”if you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you”—Monte Nagler set out to capture the breadth and beauty of the state. From the Keweenaw Peninsula and the falls and forests of the Western U.P., to urban and industrial metro Detroit, and from the sandy shorelines of Lake Michigan to the quiet beauty found along the fields and back roads, Nagler portrays a rich and contemplative treasure of all that Michigan has to offer.

These 92 black and white photographs, including 6 spectacular panoramic views, will invite you to explore the wonders, the seasons, and the diverse landscapes that are Michigan.

Viewing Monte Nagler’s photography is like stepping into a scene that is at once familiar and surreal. He distills vistas into their core components, arranges the forms on his ground glass and renders an image that makes us long to be there and experience what he has seen.

Monte has photographed some of the most beautiful places on this earth, but this series of superb photographs were made in his own back yard: the spectacular state of Michigan. This book of photographs bursts with light and shadow in Monte’s unique yet traditional way of seeing. It will be priceless with the passing of time.
