The photographs of James L. Amos are a celebration of art, life, geography and design. They show the connection between human beings and their world, and they revel in color and beauty. Renowned for his career as a National Geographic photographer, Amos’s images also reflect his strong interest in music, his extraordinary technical skills and craftsmanship, and something of his inner terrain.
