David Muench

Some artists who've been touched by the Universe have the ability to make a lovely place look lovelier than it is. Obvious choices would include Ansel Adams, Eliot Porter, and, closer to home, painters Ellen Wagener and Ed Mell. Another Arizonan with that special knack is photographer David Muench, who roams the state (and others in the mountain West) seeking out patches of landscape to transform into optic myth. Boiled down, dude's good. He'll be signing his new book, Arizona.
