A photographic appreciation by Dennis Stock (American photographer, 1928-2010)
Dennis Stock discovered the sun as the central graphic element of his own life while on an
assignment in the golden hills of Umbria, Italy. He was there to photograph the landscapes
that had become so central to the philosophy of St. Francis of Assisi. Inspired by his
experience and by St. Francis' own record of gratitude for his celestial "brother", Stock
set out to begin one of the major works of his career: a photographic appreciation
of the sun, "Brother Sun".
