About the Book
In this large format, high-quality, coffee table photography book, Michael D. Becker focuses on capturing the Strength, Confidence, & Beauty of women through his unique photographic style, which can be summarized as cinematic, colorful, bold, high impact imagery designed to provoke thought and evoke emotion from the viewer.
