The images are more than visual; they're loaded with content and stories
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
Springtime is here! What better time to bring out the camera?
Award-winning photographer Leonard Volk, FAIA emeritus and retired architect of Dallas, Texas, now offers readers a rare glimpse inside his extraordinary collection of photographs and essays from over the past 60 years, in his book “everyday”(Brown Books Publishing Group).
Volk's talent for focusing attention on the exquisite details of everyday life is mesmerizing.
“everyday” spotlights the familiar things usually screened from our attention.
The subjects of Volk's photographs range from household items to common human interactions, scraps of landscapes to urban details—most of which usually go unnoticed.
Amateurs and professional photographers alike will be inspired.
“The images are more than visual; they're loaded with content and stories and evoke emotions rarely projected,” says Hal Box, FAIA, former Dean of the School of Architecture, University of Texas at Austin.
“May you enjoy your photographic journey of discovery as much as I have mine,” says Volk. “What better time than now to start documenting lifetime memories and enjoy the experience of life behind the lens?”
