Steven Brooke is the photographer and author of Rizzoli's Views of Jerusalem and the Holy Land and the photographer and coauthor with Susan Sully of Savannah Style. He is a regular contributor to books and journals on architecture and design. His work is widely exhibited and included in numerous private and corporate collections. Steven Brooke lives in Miami with his wife, architect Suzanne Martinson, and their son, Miles.
Brooke presents an absolutely stunning collection of monochrome photographs depicting typical signature views of Rome and an array of other, less familiar architectural jewels. This visually compelling guide is divided into three historically significant and culturally distinct eras. Approximately 200 black-and-white photos capture the unique essence of ancient Rome, Christian Rome, and modern Rome. Each photographic representation is accompanied by a detailed explanatory caption, and many are offset by exquisite period engravings. Three essays by prominent art historians serve as an introduction, but the superb photographs stand alone in this sumptuous testament to the timeless power and social value of architecture from a photographer of considerable artistry and talent. Margaret Flanagan
