GOLDEN MOMENTS — A Tribute to An Engineering Masterpiece


Ever since I first had a camera in my hands, I've had an
overwhelming fascination with The Golden Gate Bridge. This
book is a visual chronology that tells the story of my obsession
with one of the most photographed landmarks in the world. In
spite of the ubiquity of such photos shot by thousands, my aim
in telling my own exclusive story is with images of the bridge
that have been shot over a period of more than five decades, all
from different perspectives — above, on top of, close-up and
from a distance — all as my personal message of affection and
respect for an engineering marvel.
