Bridge Photography Book, Full of Suspense
September 17, 2014. Photographer R. Glenn Alexander announces the release of his new book, America’s Greatest Suspension Bridges, a Photographic Essay. This unique work describes, in the author’s words and photographs, ten of the greatest suspension bridges* ever built in the world, and all still fully operational in the United States. From the Wheeling Suspension Bridge (1849) to the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge (1964) the group spans over 160 years of American history, and helps weave together the fabric of a country stretching from New York City to San Francisco.
Each structure in the 194 page volume was included because, when opened, it was the longest suspension bridge (or second longest in one instance) in the world. Dynamic photo compositions in each of the ten chapters include panoramic vistas, structural details, people using the bridge and the views they experience while being on it. It will appeal to a variety of individuals who have visited or hope to visit these landmarks, as well as professional and amateur bridge enthusiasts, and general readers who appreciate quality architectural photography.
America’s Greatest Suspension Bridges, a Photographic Essay is a self published book produced by Mr. Alexander's printing firm, pixelPRESERVE LLC. It will be available through Amazon.com and pixelPRESERVE’s own www.pixelpreserve.net.
