Rebecca Solnit

I am working my way through a fantastic collection of essays by writer, journalist, and activist Rebecca Solnit titled Storming the Gates of Paradise published by University of California Press.

Her writing on the environment, social justice and the American west is heroic, important, and accessible. I highly recommend picking up a copy. In the meantime I have linked to several of her essays on photography: on Susan Sontag, on Western Landscape Photography, on Edward Burtynsky.
