Clinton's up close and personal images in this publication are thrilling to me. The view through a fine photographers lens brings us stunning beauty that is often overlooked in everyday life.

Dear Karena,

Michael Clinton records spaces the way I like to — up close and with an attention to details. I've found in my travels that it is in remembering the details that we do in fact also better remember the grand sweeps.

Such vibrant colors and interesting subjects. I love that photo of the statue (Argentina) - that pink is stunning.
