From "Laura McPhee: River Of No Return":

Texas-based artist Chris Sauter shared with Art of the Rural news of photographer Laura McPhee's River Of No Return series. Ms. McPhee was raised in rural New Jersey and her recent work has chosen cultural environments as various as New York City and Kolkata, India. Here, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Robert Haas writes on the work of Ms. McPhee:

"Laura McPhee made these remarkable photographs over several years on successive visits to the Sawtooth Valley [in central Idaho]. River of No Return is organized like a long poem or a piece of music...a stunning look at an actual place, a meditation on rivers, nature, history, the history of landscape photography, of the American West and the idea of the American West. And – while I'm piling theme on theme – the nature of fact and the nature of myth, and how we hold the world in our hands.
