Please note that this book contains fine art nudes and is intended for age-appropriate audiences.

In the shadow of one of America's most aggressively conservative religions something extraordinary has taken root; an alternative and counter-culture community unique in all the world. To some it represents an intrusion, to others an antidote. To me, tribe.

I went to Utah early in 2009 to spend some time with my daughter and at the same time investigate the possibility of doing a documentary about the fascinating changes I'd seen going on there. Things were slow-going at first and then all of a sudden it was as if I'd hit the motherlode and there weren't enough hours in the day to photograph everyone I wanted to photograph.

By the time I began wrapping things up for this book I realized that I'd only barely scratched the surface and that I could probably spend years in Utah photographing all of the interesting and beautiful people I'd found there; a spectrum of people who are in so many ways a distinct counterpoint to the population that Utah is most known for.

The images in this collection were created for the pure joy of creating them. I had no one other than myself to please; no paying clients, no agents or editors and no deadlines. Just me and the models having fun and exploring in the moment whatever was there to explore.

This is work that comes from my heart; informed by a lifetime of adventures and fueled by a restless creative energy that's always been a part of everything I do. This is what happens when you leave the rules behind and just go out and have fun with a camera and some really cool people.

What I find most inspiring about this collection is the fact that this clearly demonstrates the diversity, the breadth, and lushness of Utah. Not the Utah trapped in an archaic belief system, but the new Utah, the bold Utah, the present and future Utah. The artist has a knack, an incredible eye to be able to capture the models in the perfect surroundings. It is a marvelous compilation! Daring and thoughtful.

Tom has captured the beauty and diversity of the landscape and the people in Utah. His talent is unmatched in allowing the viewer to "feel" what he was feeling when he took the photograph. This collection touches me differently each time I look at it. It is a prized possession.

You captured the beauty of the Utahans in an eloquent and thought-provoking way that proves diversity is alive and well in this oft forgotten territory. - Kudos to you and your creative vision, Stuart G.R. Warner W.
