Brent Gilstrap has been visiting the Yosemite area since he was a wee lad, marveling at the sight of things so much taller than him. While many people are attracted by the grandeur of Yosemite and the magnificence of the scenery, Brent has a more personal connection to the park; the bare granite domes there resemble the head he sees in the mirror every day and thus he is driven to capture them in pictures.

Brent and his wife moved to Mariposa in 2005; as Brent continues his search for the perfect picture, his wife encourages him to spend as much time away from the house as possible.
