Overview

"Each recognizable image shimmers with a touch of fantasy befitting the area."
—-Grand Rapids Press

Traverse City is Michigan's own "city by the bay," with shops, restaurants, and a stunning shoreline, while the Leelanau Peninsula is renowned for vineyards, breathtaking views, and many natural attractions. Together they make this northwest-Michigan region a destination spot for thousands of travelers year-round.

Traverse City and the Leelanau Peninsula, artist Cynthia Davis's latest book, reveals a view of the world unlike any other. Here, Davis turns her artist's eye on Traverse City and the Leelanau Peninsula in these remarkable hand-altered Polaroid photographs.

Davis creates her work by manipulating the gel-like chemicals in Polaroid photographs while they're still developing, imbuing her pictures with a dreamlike quality, somewhere between photorealism and impressionist painting.

Anyone who has visited Traverse City or the Leelanau Peninsula will love Davis's unique and colorful evocations of the area.
