Cape Town: Up Close & Personal by Mia Feinstein (2012-03-15)

Hardcover

After several years of absence, photographer Mia Feinstein returns to South Africa to rediscover the place of her birth – Cape Town. The lens of this talented young artist frames a photographic tour de force: hidden angles surprise, little-noticed features delight and old favourites assume new contexts. From a selection of glorious bird’s-eye views to lively street scenes and close-up portraits, her camera reveals a Cape Town few have seen and even fewer have stopped to admire, making Cape Town Up Close & Personal a richly textured tribute to one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Customer review(s)

"A different approach to researching CT, with the testimonials of CT residents, and a focus on everyday life and personal experience rather than providing a global understanding of the city's history, geography and mores. Very useful."
