Michio Hoshino traveled from his native Japan to Alaska in 1972 for what was to be a two-week trip. Enchanted, he stayed for three months, then returned to live there in 1978, undertaking a lifelong career as a naturalist and photographer driven by a deep commitment to and curiosity about the region. Killed by a bear while traveling in Russia in 1996, he is still widely regarded as the preeminent photographer of the Alaskan wilderness for his breathtakingly beautiful photographs, at once majestic and intimate. "Hoshino's Alaska" celebrates his life and work by collecting nearly 150 of his bestimages, along with insightful excerpts from his writings, and essays by his close friend and translator Karen Colligan-Taylor and by author and photographer Lynn Schoolerrevealing both the heart of Alaska and of the man behind the lens.
