LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This Friday, a young woman photographer and writer from Los Angeles, California will be releasing a poetry/photography book titled Escapism: Words + Photos. The book's author, Candice Lee, also a UCLA alumni, turns 28 years old on the date of the book's release. For the last three years, she's been visiting national parks on her own, with plans to visit all 58 parks in the United States. Her most recent trip, this past winter, was in Glacier National Park (Montana), where she slipped off an icy bridge and fell into the river, midst freezing temperatures. Luckily she only suffered a minor wrist fracture. This hiking accident was one of several catalysts to the completion of this book upon her return home to Los Angeles.

About the book: This is a story about love and loss. This full-color book is a collection of poems and landscape photographs--all written, shot, and arranged by the author.
Composed in the style of a memoir, she shares her experiences through words and photos. This window into her emotions reveals the dark side of love as it narrates the journey through relationships, friendships, it's-complicated-ships, and self-identity. But really, it's a story about finding beauty in pain, through growth.
From the author:
"Everybody hurts. But not everyone is willing to share their pain from weak moments. It's difficult to put it all out there. I believe, these are the moments that mark beginnings of transformation. I hope this book helps people feel a little less lonely and a little more inspired. We all feel it."
Photographs include: Yosemite NP; Antelope Island SP; Anza-Borrego Desert SP; Death Valley NP; Glacier NP; Grand Teton NP; Lake Tahoe, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Olympic NP; Pacific NW beaches; Provincetown, MA; Saguaro NP; Saratoga Springs, UT; Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP; Sierra Nevadas; White Sands NM; Yellowstone NP; and more.
All proceeds from the first year of publication through Sep 2017 will be donated to the National Parks Conservation Association and the National YoungArts Foundation.
