Book Description

For some, Seattle is the corner of the Northwest. For others, it is the headquarters for some of the world's most recognized brands-Microsoft, Amazon.com, REI, Boeing, etc. For still others it is a destination, a vacation spot to see the likes of the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, or perhaps the stunning view of the Sound and the Olympic Mountains. The Emerald City seems to reside in our country's psyche as our hope, our hype, our home-young, rambunctious, eager to imitate, out-innovate, and challenge the world's reigning metropolitan centers. This photo-essay journey by acclaimed photographer Joel Rogers sets out to document the heart of the Northwestern culture and the soul of an urban mecca. Along the way, readers discover why it's so easy to fall in love with Seattle.

Format: Hardcover
Most city photo books are for tourists, awards or perhaps libraries. They usually don't give you a sense of the people and emotions of the city just some photos of landmarks. Joel Roger's book is different because he knows Seattle so well and he is a great photojournalist. His book left me happy I live here and reminded me of many sweet and breathtaking moments. It is the perfect book to hand to my house guests when they arrive asking, "What should we do?"

This book lives up to its reputation for being a good review of Seattle, both for people who are already familiar with the area as well as for newbies. The friend I bought it for lives there, and he liked it.

I'm the administrator in a scientific research laboratory in Seattle. We've had dozens of postdoctoral fellows and visiting scientists who spend 2-3 years working in the lab. At the "farewell lunch", just before they return to their home country, speeches are made reminiscing about their stay here, and they are ceremoniously presented with a copy of this book, with inscriptions from everybody in the lab. It's a great memento for them to take home.

Rogers captures the way we Seattle-ites live in and amidst the natural world. His eye and lens time and again bring out the physical beauty of this place we call home.
