Matthew Bamberg is not only a superb photographer whose images are becoming frequently seen in many conspicuous paces, but he also is a user-friendly teacher and mentor for photographers at every level. And as he demonstrates in this fine book, he is a travel guide with a bag full of information as to where to visit in places like San Francisco and then how to capture those moments of beauty and excitement on film as keepsakes of a trip not likely to be forgotten.
Not one to point out the obvious (though the icons of the great city of San Francisco are not at all neglected), Bamberg instead takes his fellow traveler on tours through the areas of this city not often visited by tourists. He offers directions on how to find and get to these special places, offers some succinct history of that location, then helps the traveler in technically capture the experience on film. He divides his book into five sections: Architecture, City Life, Events, Urban Oasis, and Secret Places (the last being the most satisfying for those who think they already know San Francisco).
This then is a travel book, a photography manual, and a very useful guide to discovering the special qualities of San Francisco. Now Bamberg needs to do the same for every major city in the country! Grady Harp
