Iowa Simply Beautiful

photography by Larsh K. Bristol
and Curt Maas

published by Farcountry Press

  • Come home to Iowa in this beautiful color tribute to the Hawkeye State by professional photographers who are also native sons.

    They train their cameras on daily life, the beauties of landscapes, changes in weather and seasons, and more. Artists with lenses discover artistic images all around: trees coated with sparkling ice, dew-beaded spider webs, rolling hills turned mystical by morning mist, historical sites recalling ancestors, farming's geometric patterns, and the flaming sunset that closes a frigid winter day. Looking at their Iowa will enrich appreciation of our Iowa, taking us back home to America's heartland.

 align= Larsh K. Bristol earned a BA in journalism from the University of Wyoming, worked in advertising and photojournalism before returning to his home state of Iowa. He was irresistibly drawn back to the streams, valleys, wooded hills, and people of the magnificent Mississippi River Valley. Years as a freelance photographer in the upper Midwest reaffirmed his belief that the light and landscape of Iowa were as magnificent as any in the United States. In August 2006, Larsh Bristol was killed in an automobile accident while traveling one of the rural northeastern Iowa river roads he so loved.
 align= Originally from Fort Dodge, Curt Maas lived in Iowa most of his life. He was an honor graduate of the Brook's Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara and traveled the U.S. and the world producing work for a variety of agricultural companies, advertising agencies, and government institutions. His work was also featured in many magazines, documentaries, and books, including Iowa Impressions, Iowa Simply Beautiful, Iowa: A Celebration of Land, People, and Purpose, and Country USA: 24 Hours in Rural America. Curt Maas passed away on September 7, 2005.
