Living as a Parisian for a year, author Michael Saint James left his American lifestyle and spent his days and nights capturing images from over, on, beside and under the bridges of Paris. With over 30 years experience as a photographer, educator and world traveler, Michael immersed himself in French culture to search out his authentic artist self. The result is a visual treasure to share with everyone.
As an educator with California teaching credentials, he has taught media production and technology arts as well as photography, art history and visual storytelling. He is an expert speaker on Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. Indeed, he walked in Vincent Van Gogh’s footsteps through the Netherlands, Belgium, and France in order to immerse himself in that troubled master’s vision.
The father of two grown children, Saint James once owned a café in Berkeley, California. He has bicycled from Las Vegas to Washington, D.C. and is rumored to play a mean blues harmonica.
Prizes: Win one of 15 print copies of Bridges of Paris.
I just finished reading "Bridges of Paris" and all I can say is wow ! Every picture is prettier and nicer than the last. The book itself is gorgeous. It is a large book which makes the pictures bigger. There are older bridges as well as newer bridges. Some of the bridges have beautiful flowers around them. I can just imagine after having read this book how much fun it would be to go and see these in person. The author even made small maps with each one. There are over 350 beautiful photographs. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are my own.
