Every once in a while a piece of skiing history comes across our desks here at the Skiing office that rattles our soul and reminds us of how our sport fits into the bigger picture of life in the mountains through stunning documentation of the play of light, textures, and long-shadowed forms inherent to a mountain existence. Fletcher Manley’s new photo book Winter Light brings it all home. A self-described rambler amongst peaks and valleys, Manley made the photos in Winter Light between 1967 and 2010. With and intro from legendary ski photographer Peter Miller, this modestly priced book, as well as prints, can be purchased at fletchermanley.com. At the very least, check his Haute Route and Tucks galleries online. You won’t be disappointed.
