Seeing Charleston  

Photographer and writer Ron Rocz has spent decades learning how best to capture Charleston and the Lowcountry in photographs. In Seeing Charleston: A Field Guide to Photographing a World-Class City, he guides the reader to sung and unsung locations, suggesting the best time of day and position to capture an image. He also tells the story of the location, grounding the reader in the significance of the place. Rocz takes us from Rainbow Row and the cobblestone streets of Charleston to the Lowcountry sea islands and the salt marshes. He inspires us to look for details - at an ornate cornice, the swirl of a wrought-iron gate, a reflection in a window, a shadow across the steps. Rocz opens the door of the city he obviously loves and invites the reader to look and see it more deeply. This durable field guide features fold-out maps to take you to some of the most compelling locations in Charleston and the Lowcountry. Whether you are seeking the dramatic or craving the quiet places of this marvelous land, Rocz will make you feel like an insider.
