Pelican Publishing Companyís popular photographic and architectural Majesty series has traveled from its midsouthern base of Mississippi, Louisiana, and Tennessee to the east coast of Georgia, focusing its lens on another southern belle - the romantic port city of Savannah. Historian John Duncan reminisces of the city, "To the fast-paced outsider, the town might be a place of live oaks and dead people, but here the past is not past - it is very much alive."
Master photographer Peter Beneyís goal in creating this full-color compendium, The Majesty of Savannah , was to bring the past to life by capturing the unique and ever-copied architecture of the homes, offices, and monuments that overlook the skillfully designed, lush green squares in the heart of the city. He shows visitors and locals up-close details not seen from street level and invitation-only interiors, some re-creations, others continued preservation, of the slow and charmed lifestyle of the South.
Peter Beneyís most recent work is Atlanta: A Brave and Beautiful City , which was used to promote the city in its successful bid to the International Olympic Committee. Additionally, his numerous photographic credits over the past forty years include other travel and architectural works using photographs from his many world travels. Over the years, he has accumulated a library of more than 20,000 of his own pictures which he markets worldwide.
