Profiles of those who do not retire from something but to something.
de Al Gerk
This book is a series of photo profiles of people who in later life have found and are following there life's ambition. People who did not retire from something but to something.
The photographer, Al Gerk, is a retired Engineering and Management professional living in the downtown district of Huntington Beach. Dr. Gerk has returned to his first love, photography, after almost a forty year absence. In all of his work he is supported by his muse, Stella (who happens to be his wife) who is an active participant in the work. Today the digital age has revolutionized the technology of photography but the most important “Eye of the Photographer” remains essentially unchanged. “I want to share the beauty that surrounds all of us and take photographs that people pause, think, and want to come back to again and again. For this it remains that one needs the right aesthetic concept and then be in the right place, at right time before the power of the new technology is of any value.” The Authors would welcome your comments or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
