Faces of the Susquehanna: A Photographic Study of Natural Reflections

Photographer Stephen Pidcock brings the Susquehanna River landscape to life with his collection of landscape reflections. When viewed vertically at a slightly different perspective, they reveal a slew of rock “faces” reflected in the waters of the Susquehanna. Sometimes humorous, sometimes forlorn, it is a joy to flip through the book and reflect on each
unique face and mood of the river.

“I’ve seen faces in things since I was a kid,” says Pidcock. “Clouds, landscapes, whatever…I think in a lot of children this creativity is shut off by the time we get to a certain age, but it’s something I’ve always enjoyed exploring in nature.” Pidcock captured the images after scouting the Lower Susquehanna by kayak and returning to a “face” when lighting and water conditions were just right. “I discovered it’s a whole other world when you’re out on the river and things are still and quiet. I grew up out west, and I’ve seen a lot of landscapes, but I think the Susquehanna is one of the best natural sculpture gardens I’ve come across.”
