Praise for Portrait of Palm Springs:

?It is rare to find a person with a sensitive eye and the spirit and strength to capture the desert and mountain environments in and around Palm Springs. Tom?s dedication to photographing this dynamic region is a gift. This book represents an artist of significance. The future will see us as lucky to have had him in our midst.?
?Frank Jones, associate publisher, Palm Springs Life Magazine

?This masterful collection of photographs entices viewers to explore the magical place that I call home, the Palm Springs desert region. I hope everyone will view this collection of stunning images with the same joy of discovery and awe that I felt while lingering on page after wonderful page. I have been a big fan of Tom Brewster?s work for many years. This compilation of Tom?s work captures the essence, spectacular majesty, and beauty of the desert and the people who live there. Enjoy the view!?
?Congresswoman Mary Bono, California's 45th Congressional District

?Tom Brewster?s Portrait of Palm Springs is a beautiful book, full of colorful, artistic images taken in just the right light. Panoramic landscapes, full-page images, and smaller details are laid out artfully. The city and vicinity are shown beautifully, from the art museum to celebrities to a camelback safari. Adjacent Joshua Tree National Park is handsomely illustrated, as are the Salton Sea, polo players, balloonists, and the Living Desert.?
?Lou Jacobs, Jr., photographer and author of several books, including Professional Children?s Portrait Photography
