About the Book
In this new photographic essay, the author takes the viewer to one of his favorite spots along the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta, Georgia.
This is a pictorial summary of five years of reflections - visual and other - assembled while exploring the river banks, tracking both light and wildlife in all seasons and atmospheric conditions.
Chattahoochee is the first in a two-part series on Atlanta Reflections. The focus of Volume Two will be on architecture.
A native of Dunkirk, Northern France, Claude Wegscheider has spent most of his career overseas. After a teaching assistantship in an American university in the 70s, he spent eight years with the French Cultural Mission in Casablanca, Morocco, where he developed his interest for photography within local Photo-Clubs. He later became the Executive Director of Alliance Française in Atlanta, USA and New Delhi, India. In 1990, he established his residence in the United States. His long-time passion for wide open spaces and a predilection for deserts have led him to travel to every continent - except Antarctica (so far, anyway) - and the Arctic. An eclectic photographer, he switches between landscape, architectural, animal and macro photography.
