John Lehew has traveled around the world observing, documenting and photographing the scenic, cultural and natural reality of our planet for more than thirty years. His travels have taken him to more than fifty-five countries on six continents and he has sailed on both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in the U. S. Merchant Marine. John has spent considerable time observing and photographing the scenic beauty of our world and the energy of those who inhabit it, both in the U. S. and abroad. He has spent much of his career doing environmental cleanup work and has run some of the largest and most complex nuclear decommissioning and environmental cleanup projects in the world. He has degrees in marine engineering, nuclear engineering and environmental engineering. His background and experiences give him an insight not only into the natural wonders of the world, but also into our place within it. John currently resides in Eagle-Vail, Colorado with his family. He frequently enjoys the outdoor lifestyle that the Rocky Mountains bring, but continues to travel to the beaches and oceans of the world to maintain his own Buoyancy.
Jonathan Taylor Bartlett loves long walks on the beach and hates when people decorate for holidays too early. Not knowing what he is doing is a daily occurrence, though he always knows where he is going especially if he has been there before. He has a great sense of direction. He has been described as both hilariously handsome and devilishly over confident. As for his art, well this book is just the tip of the iceberg. Unfortunately, due to alleged "global warming" the tip of the iceberg is all that is left. If I had to pick one word to describe Jonathan Taylor Bartlett and I had never met him I would say, "stranger." Only three people have ever done more for the game of basketball, and without him there would be no indie-pop rap. He is the creator of worlds and the destroyer of Captain Crunch. He received a BFA in Studio Art after six long and adventurous years at the University of Colorado in Boulder and now resides in St. Louis. Though his passions are vast, he longs for the unknowing, the bittersweet, the hot and sweaty uncertainty of the open road to nowhere. If you gave him lemons he would give you roughly the amount they are worth. He's fair like that. And with those newly purchased lemons he would create a symphony of wonder, the likes of which you have never seen. Lemons that danced and tiptoed the edge of anger and ecstasy inside your mind. (I had a really good time working on this book!)
