Turner's flair for creating dramatic images and his love of intense color make him an ideal magazine photographer, with credits ranging from Omni to Esquire. A volcanic eruption in Iceland, a giraffe silhouetted against a deep red sky, Easter Island and Masai tribesmen all become images in an almost surreal world. In one chromatic fantasy, a crescent moon hangs over an Egyptian pyramid that is glowing green. Few photographers have made the grand Canyon look as poetic and mysterious. Taken out of their usual contexts, umbrellas, bubbles, jukeboxes, a Holiday Inn "welcome" signassume new meanings and shapes. As an art photographer whose aspirations go beyond the commercial, Turner is predictable and facile, though his images nearly always grab one's attention. Edwards, a former editor of American Photographer, examines Turner's merging of art and commerce.
