The only collection of photographs devoted to one of America’s natural treasures, Shenandoah: Views of Our National Park documents one man’s decades-long fascination with this uniquely beautiful region in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Hullihen Williams Moore has been visiting Shenandoah National Park since the mid-1960s, but it was after studying with Ansel Adams in 1979 that he began seriously photographing it. Through fifty-one black-and-white duotone photographic prints, Moore reveals the quiet beauty of Shenandoah National Park. From grand vistas and waterfalls to the delicate unfurling of new ferns, these photographs capture the singular appeal that attracts 1.7 million visitors to the park each year.

In two essays, Moore addresses the natural and human history of the park as well as his own personal experience of it, including the stories behind the individual images. The author has also included a helpful appendix of technical details regarding the photographs.

A limited edition accompanied by original photographic prints is available from the artist at


Classical and very traditional in their form and content, the prints are technically flawless and present a high level of proficiency and elegance, as well as a discerning personal vision.
