Kim Baker and John Jernigan, “Oklahoma Unforgettable”



 

Exploring the State Through Camera Lense


Here in the clutch of winter, when trees are bare and the sky is gray, it can be all too easy to forget our state’s abundant potential for beauty. Unless, that is, you have a reminder to hand in the form of gloriously colorful coffee-table tome “Oklahoma Unforgettable.” The new collaboration between exceptional photographers Kim Baker and John Jernigan doesn’t have a narrative through-line or even much in the way of reading material – merely captions to provide context and a foreword by Donald W. Reeves of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum – but it’s a pleasure to get lost in the vivid depictions of the state’s various allures. The bustle of downtown Oklahoma City to the utter tranquility of Broken Bow Lake, tulips adorning the OU campus in Norman to dirt flying at the Woodward Elks Rodeo (“Tuffest of ’em all”) … if you’re in the mood to explore Oklahoma without leaving the house, happy trails.

► A new year means a fresh opportunity for recognizing excellence; if someone you know (including you) had a book published in 2014, it could be eligible for an Oklahoma Book Award. Visit odl.state.ok.us/ocb/ for details, and get the entry in by January 9. Good luck!
