(Photos Taken Within One-Day’s Drive of Home)
by Harvey Duze
About the Book
Inspiration for a book project can come from many sources. In the case of this book, it came about as a result of an incident which occurred while on a vacation to eastern Long Island. No, the book has nothing to do with locally grown farm products, but what the definition of what can be considered "locally grown."
Starting from home, and journeying out from there, this varied collection of photographs is testament to always being open to opportunities to photograph subjects regardless of where they may be found. Sometimes the best photos are created from subjects near to home.
Over 40 years of professional and creative photographic and graphic design/desktop publishing experience, including handling a wide range of corporate and editorial location and studio photographic assignments, graphics to illustrate presentations and both print and Web-based publications, logos and corporate identities and the creation of both speaker-support and self-running "kiosk" PowerPoint presentations, and Web-based HTML and Flash slideshows. While the majority of my work has been done in the Northeast, U.S., I've also traveled to other parts of the U.S. and Canada, as well as overseas to Ireland and Italy. In recent years, urban and rural landscapes, nature and people have been my favorite photographic subjects.
