PHOTOGRAPHING EDEN: DAVID J. WEST
Interview by Stephen B. Armstrong
Springdale, Utah sits just outside of Zion National Park, one of America’s most popular—and beautiful—travel destinations. The streets of Springdale are lined with inns, bars, gift shops, outdoor gear suppliers and coffee shops, making it a charming place to walk after a day of hiking. Among the more striking spots in Springdale is the David J. West Galley, where visitors will find enormous photographs of Zion hanging from the walls, along with images of other spectacular sites in the Mountain West, including Bryce Canyon, the Wasatch Front and the Grand Canyon. All of these photographs are the work of one person, the gallery’s sole owner and proprietor, as well as its namesake, David J. West. West recently stopped to chat with Route 7 Review about his life and his craft.
