  Jeff Lovelace
I met Jeff Lovelace in Santa Maria, California in 1965. His environmental book, A California Landscape, was among the first of that genre and hailed as "a plea for sensible value judgements by government and society" and "a tasteful, well-done piece of artistic literature..." He worked for many years in newspaper, magazine and theater photography. His travels have taken him all over North America, and to New Zealand, North Africa and most of Western Europe. Today he lives quietly in Bakersfield, CA enjoying easy access to California's high desert and the Eastern Sierra range.
