Witness the epic creation of the astonishing PNW landscape through the lens of Spokane photographer and author Timothy Connor. Capturing the raw beauty, serenity and range of the scablands, Connor spotlights the dramatic impact of cataclysmic floods that (over 15,000 years later) remain evident today. Beautiful Wounds is a contemporary visual record of our area’s volatile and rich geological past with accompanying narratives. Connor’s reverence for natural surroundings was initially fostered through outings with grandfather, Gil Hartman, who was an avid outdoorsman. This collection of photographs depicts his personal experience within the landscape as well as a deep passion for geology.

“In 2013, I began wandering into this surreal landscape with a heavy heart and a camera. I sought and found solace in a terrain that some would dismiss, too quickly, as barren or hostile. It’s difficult to describe the birdsong-inflected tranquility of the vernal sagelands or the nameless wetlands beyond cellular service. It’s harder, still, to find words for why journeys into these expanses and rock-walled cathedrals have been so spiritually replenishing… On the best days, the lines between photography and convalescence dissolve.” – Timothy Connor
