Salem, my eldest son and an aspiring photojournalist, has been placing much of his work on this site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/photographsbymichaelsalempeters/. Salem has also produced his first book which may be purchased here: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/451268. I have always considered the artistic expression put into books especially admirable so I am trilled that my son has taken his first steps into authorship and publications. Yes I have purchased the hard cover version and yes I am going to have the author autograph my copy. Salem has already indicated that he is working on his next book that will contain narratives to accompany his photographs. I’m anxious to see what is next. He is a starving artist right now but with persistence, dedication, and hard work, Salem will make a rewarding career for himself as he carves his own path through life.
Bravo Mr. Salem!
