On a crisp autumn day in November, 2007, dozens of photographers packed their equipment and took up a unique challenge: to “capture” the essence of the city of Glendale, California in a single day. Photographers of all stripes—professionals, students and amateurs—combed every corner of Glendale looking for just the right subject matter to represent the many facets of this historic, vibrant and diverse city. The photographers whose work is represented in this book are as diverse as Glendale itself. Homemakers, corporate executives, entrepreneurs, teachers, students, medical professionals and government workers were among the 51 shutterbugs who submitted more than 250 photographs and digital images taken during this community project. However, all participants have one thing in common—a love of their city which is evident in the creative sweep and unique composition of the photographs that are documented in this beautifully designed, large-format book.
