Meticulous travel and photo subject planning were required to ensure just the right pictures were taken. One of his favorite photos captures wild horses in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota. In contrast, another displays the "Field of Empty Chairs" exhibit at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. The site honors victims of the April 19, 1995, terrorist truck bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Okla.
Ingevaldson hopes purchasers of his book will discover the diversity and beauty throughout the U.S. via his photos and be encouraged to travel the country more.
“We have this beautiful country, and so many people never get to see it; it's a shame,” he said.
He also hopes his book will drive people to learn more about the U.S.
“A parent could discuss each photo with their children, covering the positive things about it, plus the history of our country,” Ingevaldson said. “Although several photos are somber, each provides teaching points.”
Ingevaldson didn't think about selling the book until he discovered that people enjoy viewing his photos – plus, few books quite like it apparently exist.
