"For with every bit of light we receive and every mystery we uncover, we have done little more than open new paths to even greater vistas and even deeper seas"–Lost In Learning

Eva Koleva Timothy is a Media/Communications graduate from the University of Utah and a graduate of the Oxford School of Photography holding a Licentiate Certification from the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain. She was recently chosen as a finalist for the Julia Margaret Cameron Award for her photograph, The Man Behind The Mona Lisa.

As Book Design Editor for Eva's Monograph, Lost In Learning (Fall 2010, Athenaeum), I want to introduce you to her beautiful photographs, some of which incorporate the use of Sfumato, a technique originated by Da Vinci centuries ago. "My intent in this project has been to create a portrait of an age where exploration was life's supreme adventure." For the front cover of the book, Eva chose her photograph, The Journal c. 1800's. Catherine Petruccione posted a Book Review of Lost in Learning on her blog Old Scrolls.
