About the Author

Robert A. Boyd

For almost ten years Robert A. Boyd has been creating images of temples around the world in a unique fine-art style. A professional photographer for nearly twenty years, Robert once traveled the world photographing for clients. One day his mother-in-law expressed her longing for some beautiful pictures of the temple. She suggested that in his travels he should use his talents to photograph the temples in an artistic style. As soon as he turned his viewfinder towards this objective, it seemed as if new, beautiful scenes were now there, ready for him, every time he went to photograph.

The temple has long played a significant role in the life of Robert and his wife Eleah. Particularly, the passing of their first child, and the subsequent adoption and sealing of 3 additional children, have driven home the importance of the temple to the Boyd family. The blessings we receive in the temple have been a great source of peace and joy to them, and that has served to endear a great love of the temple in their hearts.

Today Robert is fortunate to work full time both creating temple art, and also overseeing the fine art printing process for his own art work, and that of other artists. He feels very blessed to be a part of something that is so meaningful to so many, and he hopes to share his feelings of the beauty of the temple as he strives to illuminate his photographic art with peace, light and balance. He lives in Utah with his wife and their five beautiful children

Incredibly beautiful!

This has got to be the most beautiful book I have ever seen! I mean, WOW! The sheer amount of work that must have gone into this is mind-boggling. The book is a collection of photographs of temples from around the United States and Canada. The photos have been taken during various times of the day and during different seasons which creates a kaleidoscope of possibilities. There are also close-ups of various parts of the temples including different shots of the Angel Moroni, stained glass windows, and other outside decorations. Some photos focus on the buildings themselves while others look at the temple within its setting. The inspirational scriptures that are included on some pages have clearly been chosen very carefully and appropriately, emphasizing the importance and value of temples. A beautifully designed book that is worth every penny!

Beautiful and Inspiring

I don’t usually get all gushy over books but when it’s a beautiful coffee table book of one of my favorite photographic subjects. . . well, all I can say is Wow. This is a beautiful photographic tribute featuring superb images of nearly 60 temples.

While I call this a photo essay, the words are actually few and are all taken from scripture. The emphasis is on the photography here. This is definitely a book where a picture is worth 1000 words—and then some. I would share with you some of my favorite images, but I cannot decide which views I like the best. I was also very pleased to see that this is one of the few books that I have had where the covers are as beautiful without the dust jacket as with it. I must admit, too, as a photographer, this book makes we want to get out and visit these temples again to look at them through fresh eyes, to find new views and new angles that I have not studied before.

I have visited many of these temples, but viewing them through the eyes of Robert Boyd, I am seeing some of the again for the first time. I am not much of a coffee-table-book person, but this one will be staying out. Not only is the photography beautiful, but the layout and design of the pages, as well as the carefully chosen typography come together to create a book that is indeed coffee-table worthy.

Just sitting with the book and leafing through its pages brings a feeling of peace and serenity—and makes me want to be in the temple. His Holy House would make a lovely gift for anyone you know who loves to attend the temple—or who has a goal of doing so.

BEAUTIFUL!

Nearly 60 temples located in the United States and Canada are depicted in a variety of settings and seasons.

Inspirational scriptures are scattered throughout the book...

Wait until you see the temple highlighted by fireworks or a display of flags..

And there is an incredible shot of a temple during wintertime...WOW!

One of my favorite pages is the two-page spread of temple spires with the majestic angel Moroni atop each one...

Or the two-page spread of the Salt Lake Temple shrouded in fog...inspiring!

Open this book to bring your heart and mind to the temple...
