Steven Gnam, who does really nice photography work, has just released a new book on the Crown of the Continent . . .
Through the lens of his camera, Steven Gnam has captured the kind of fleeting, untamed moments that might otherwise elude the human eye, disappearing like a puff of vapor in a sprawling chunk of country called the Crown of the Continent – the ecologically diverse landscape spanning the U.S.-Canada border between Missoula and Banff, Alberta.
In his new book, “The Crown of the Continent: The Wildest Rockies,” Gnam not only preserves the wild, ephemeral beauty of those moments, but through them attaches value to the region, defending its role and depicting why it’s critical to pay attention, lest we fritter away the landscape that defines us.
Meant to promote stewardship, “The Wildest Rockies” showcases images that span the boundaries of Glacier-Waterton International Peace Park, tracking along the spine of the Rocky Mountains as the Whitefish native reanimates a landscape brimming with life.

As we mentioned earlier, a group of Montana photographers is getting together to benefit Headwaters Montana, a non-profit organization working to protect the Flathead and Elk Valley watersheds, the Glacier and Waterton Parks and the Crown of the Continent ecosystem.
According to Dave Hadden of Headwaters Montana,
Thirteen of the region’s top photographers will display amazing wildlife, mountain scenery, and people in Nature. The artists’ work will be projected on the Big Screen, and 13 of their photos will be raffled off during the evening with great chances to win the photo of your choice. Reception with appetizers and beer and wine for sale. This event supports Headwaters Montana’s work to protect the water, wildlife and outdoor heritage in the Crown of the Continent.

This fund raiser, titled “Wild Places — A Celebration of Montana’s Wilderness Heritage,” features the work of some 13 photographers by my count and has an interesting hook: Each photogrpher has donated a piece to be raffled off. There will also be a slide show of their collected works.
The big event is Friday, March 11, at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish. Admission is $10. Raffle tickets are $5 for one, $20 for five or $50 for 20. There will also be an artists’ reception, appetizers, adult beverages and the above-mentioned slide show. Call 837-0783 or 862-0438 for more information.
