Accordion landscape books

After the Unbound book show at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, I wanted to get my good pal Eduardo to work his magic taking some nice photographs of them.
He's really a natural at making things really look beautiful.
Being that the books when unfolded are about 60 inches long the task of lighting as well as having enough space to lay them out for a picture was an overwhelming task to take on. The image of Evolution a book that comprises images and objects embedded to the surface, represents a section of the John Muir Trail that Mary and I passed through two years ago on our JMT trek.

The other book is about the same length and has imagery of the sky during the day on one side then the opposite side has the night sky. Layer'd on top are topographic renderings of the Waterscape and Florascape delineations in terms of who they are distinguished on the USGS maps.
