The Book of Santa Barbara
Macduff Everton (Author, Photographer), Pico Iyer (Author), Mary Heebner (Extended Captions)

Santa Barbara seems a place of such obvious charms. The golden beaches and sage-covered hillsides are there at first glance, while the Spanish-style townscape issues an invitation to visit all year, thanks to an unvaryingly pleasant Mediterranean climate. Even so, it takes an artist with a unique vision to reveal the complexity of Santa Barbara's beauty, as Macduff Everton does so brilliantly in the photographs that grace the pages of this book. A longtime Santa Barbaran, Everton uses his panoramic camera to reveal the play of light on sea and rock, the quirky corners of historic landmarks and the unexpected variety of lush gardens and open spaces.

The Modern Maya: Incidents of Travel and Friendship in Yucatán
text & photos by Macduff Everton
with contributions by Charles Demangeat and Hilario Hiler

Ancient Maya cities draw travelers from all over the world to Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula. But while tales of the "Maya collapse" give an air of mystery to the ruins, modern Maya still live in communities across the Yucatán, where they strive to maintain their culture and way of life despite centuries of political, social, and environmental disruption. Photographer Macduff Everton has spent more than four decades living and working among the Maya. His 1991 book on the modern Maya provided a superb photo-essay and ethnographic record of the Maya during a time of critical change and globalization. In this book, he masterfully updates his portrait of the modern Maya, while investigating the effects of NAFTA, tourism, the evangelical movement, world trade and maquiladoras, racism, sexism, and drugs on Maya communities.

Patagonia La Última Esperanza
Photographs by Macduff Everton Text and Drawings by Mary Heebner

In this spectacular collection of panoramic images, award-winning photographer Macduff Everton proves why Chile’s Last Hope Province, in the extreme southern corner of Patagonia is a landscape that kindles the dreams of world travelers. Patagonia La Última Esperanza is a collaboration with writer and fine artist Mary Heebner, whose meditative prose reflects the poetry of place. Just as her observations seek to unearth and understand the spirit of the region, her paintings, watercolors, and drawings evocatively counterpoint Everton’s photographs of iconic mountains and glacier-lined fjords. Together they provide a unique perspective on this vast, still mysterious territory and the lives of the people who have made a home here at the tip of the South American continent.

The Modern Maya 
text & photos by Macduff Everton

"Macduff Everton's photographs are some of the most haunting and beautiful documents of Maya life -- ancient and modern -- I have seen. They provide viewpoints that are uniquely his own, and with artistry and sensitivity, they open up for us, the Western world, a window into the experiences of another people."
Linda Schele, author of MAYA COSMOS and CODE OF KINGS

Finding the Magic Circus

"This splendid book recounts the adventures of Macduff and his son, Ricky, on a trip to the Yucatan to find El Circo Magico Modelo, the Magic Circus. The lively story is accompanied by the author's gorgeous yarn paintings, a traditional technique of the Huichol Indians that Macduff learned while living in Mexico."
Paloma Cain, book artist
