Synopsis: Above San Diego. This is the anchor of the west, a quiet metropolis that has learned to live in an enviornment of beauty without devouring it. In his Introduction, Neil Morgan invites us "to follow the city's meandering evolution from a Spanish pueblo to an insular, transplanted Midwestern town by the sea, to a Navy City, and on to its present rich diversity." Robert Cameron's lush photography shows that San Diego is of world class, and its surroundings are among the most gorgeous anywhere.
About the Author: Robert Cameron has been a photographer since 1921 when his father gave him a "Brownie" camera and encouraged him to use it. Cameron is now in his 90's and has published 16 of his "Above" books. He was a photographer for the Des Moines Register in the 1930's. Cameron learned the art of aerial photography during World War II, while shooting pictures of military installations for the War Department.

His work has been exhibited in Paris at La Bibliotheque Historique and the Foundation Mona Bismarck.
