Overview

Images of St. Louis is a visual celebration of a city with much vitality and variety. Containing images by St. Louis's best professional and amateur photographers, this collection is an intimate portrait of the neighborhoods, the landmarks, and the people of St. Louis: the glory of the Arch at dawn; the quiet of morning mass at St. Louis Cathedral; the grubby task of mowing a lawn at noon; the excitement of gospel singers entertaining a lunchtime crowd at the VP Fair; and the trial of negotiating Highway 40 at dusk. The 116 photographs in this book were chosen from more than 1,000 submissions by photographers from St. Louis and the surrounding area. Because they represent a wide spectrum of approaches and techniques, these photographs truly reflect the rich ethnic and cultural landscape that is St. Louis. In her introduction, Elaine Viets shares with the reader glimpses from her intimate acquaintance with St. Louis, recalling people and places that have made the city special.
