Breathtaking photographs of North Carolinas celebrated coastal islands, the Outer Banks, come to life in Portrait of the Outer Banks, A Pictorial Tour.
The book opens with photographs of a typical morning on the Outer Banks, where fishermen, wildlife, and beachcombers revel in the breathtaking sunrises that only the North Carolina Coastline can offer. In Buxton and Frisco, the hypnotic vision of seagulls flying overhead is balanced against a sole kayaker making her way across Pamlico Sound. Drapala captures the essence of these delicate barrier islands with an artists eye, while Kims text weaves a timeless history between the mesmerizing images. Even the Outer Banks lifelong residents will discover breathtaking views through the books photographs, some of which were taken from remote parts of the island that many people have never even visited.
Aerial and ground shots of the Outer Banks famous lighthouses are accompanied by the rich historical details of how these Lighthouses came into existence -- often a result of dramatic sea turmoil on the dark, rough waters of the North Carolina Coast.
Portrait of the Outer Banks is a timeless history that envelops the essence of Americas coastline: pristine beaches, weathered lighthouses, and salty old fishermen, along with a dose of unparalleled charm and beauty.
