With the success of these two prints and our love of everything Alaska, we decided to collaborate on what we think is a one-of-a-kind book — combining both painting and photography; a book to show off what we love about Alaska. We don’t believe this has been done before in Alaska.
The book is broken up by the four seasons, with each of the four chapters having both wildlife, landscapes and outdoor adventure scenes.
There are a number of images where we two have collaborated. By this we mean, Jon has melded his painting of additional elements on top of, and to enhance, Jeff’s photograph.
The book contains many pages where we show one of our individual images large, with a complimentary smaller image from the other on the opposite page. This will make up the majority of the book.
The is written by Jon’s wife, Jona, and by Jeff’s wife, Joan, about the life of the artist, the image as it is (location, species, etc.) and the season of Alaska.
Jona has written several books including the 2011 “My Wrangell Mountains”” with photographer Ruedi Homberger; as well as stories inside “Iditarod-First Ten Years” and Jon Van Zyle’s “Iditarod Memories”. Jona also completed a coloring/field notes children’s book for Wrangell/St. Elias National Park and Preserve.
