About the Author
Russell Abraham is one of the leading architectural photographers and emerging architectural writers in the United States. He has the unique ability both to write about and to photograph architecture in an incisive way. His work has appeared in numerous books and trade journals on architecture and interior design. He has mentored and trained many well known architectural photographers practicing today. This book is the fifth he has either written or photographed a significant part of and the second that he has created in its entirety.As a young man, Abraham migrated west from his native Pennsylvania to attend the University of California, Berkeley, where he earned degrees in architecture and design. Along the way, he found peering through the camera lens more interesting than peering at the drafting table. He started his professional career as a photojournalist, but was drawn back to architecture early on. Over the years, he has worked with many of the West Coast's leading architectural firms. He enjoys being part of the creative process and has an insider's view of architecture.
