This highly regarded outdoor and landscape photographer shares his most stunning black-and-white images from around the globe, and his adventures in search of them. Childhood adventures in Australia inspired David Neilson to pursue as a career his twin loves of the mountain realm and photography. He has made multiple expeditions to South West Tasmania, Patagonia, and Antarctica and published critically acclaimed photographic books about each of these places; he has also carried his camera into the Karakoram mountains in Pakistan, and the Alps of Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. In this oversize volume, Neilson recounts his lifelong quest to capture the mountain light and encourage the preservation of wild places. His spectacular images of jagged peaks, massive glaciers, and hardy wildlife are reproduced as duotones of the highest quality. Seven vertical double-page images invite readers to turn the book sideways to immerse themselves in the mountain heights. Chasing the Mountain Light will delight all lovers of wild outdoor places.

AUTHOR: David Neilson is based in Melbourne and the photographer and author of four books. South West Tasmania: A Land of the Wild highlighted the threatened wilderness of western Tasmania. Wilsons Promontory: Coastal Wildness celebrated the beauty of one of Australia's foremost national parks. Patagonia: Images of a Wild Land drew on his climbing expeditions to the southern Andes and his most recent book, Southern Light: Images from Antarctica, was the result of six journeys, including three by yacht, to the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic. From 1983 to 1993 he worked for the Australian Conservation Foundation as a graphic designer and pictorial editor producing books, wilderness diaries and calendars. In 1990 and 2004 he received Antarctic Arts Fellowships from the Australian Antarctic Division that enabled him to spend two summers taking photographs in the Antarctic from a base at Australia's Mawson Station. In 2021 he was one of four Antarctic Arts Fellows to be featured on a set of Australia Post stamps.
