About the Book
A simple photo book documenting a two week long vacation in Italy. Presented chronologically, the photos tell the story of Michael and Joacha and their journey together. The book has four main sections; Rome, Florence, the Tuscan Countryside, and Venice. While the overall book includes smaller photos that simply document the uneventful where's and what's of their trip, the larger full bleed images are the showcase. There is a clear hierarchy in this books layout, including about 5 different page layouts, each one designed for the type of content it showcases. These layouts are arranged to create a rhythm of images and overall viewing experience. Please enjoy this beautiful book.
Michael Jourdanais currently resides in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY, and practices architecture and design at a small Manhattan firm. After growing up in Newbury, MA with his parents and older brother, he moved to Vermont for college where he received his Masters in Architecture at Norwich University. NYC's rhythm and vibrancy appealed to his curiosity and ambitions so he moved. Much of his free time is spent wandering the city with his camera and open eyes.
