Hardcover-Large Landscape edition. Yasharel Manzy was born in the ancient Jewish ghetto of Isfahan, Iran. He immigrated to the United States at the age of twenty-one. After some twenty years of doing many different types of work, Yasharel was overwhelmed by the need for artistic expression and finally, at the age of forty-two, he abandoned his last business to devote himself to painting. He began traveling extensively, spending long periods in Israel, Costa Rica and Ecuador. But he was especially taken with the landscapes of southern France and Italy's Tuscany area. These dramatic vistas became his muse and, from time to time, he is drawn back to revisit them. Yasharel is primarily a self-taught intuitive painter who gains inspiration from both the world around him and his deep love of classical music. His paintings touch upon the emotional core that we each hold within us. Yasharel has been exhibiting regularly in Atlanta for the last twenty years. He has had over forty solo exhibitions in galleries in the United States. Claude Wegscheider was Executve Director of Alliance Française d'Atlanta, the French Cultural Center, from 1983 until 2007, where some of Yasharel's first solo exhibitions were successfully held in the early 1990s. They have shared a very close friendship ever since.

About the Author

Claude Wegscheider
cocoder Atlanta, GA USA

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). An eclectic photographer, he switches between landscape, architectural, animal and macro photography.
