Photographer P. Michael Perez and web designer Chris Curry have announced the release of a new online coffee table book entitled "Boys of Summer." Forever pushing the envelope in web design, the idea was that of designer Chris Curry who has been a longtime collaborator with Perez in his online representation.
The site is the Summer Issue of "Imagery & Models: The Imagery of P. Michael Perez" which has been on line for more than a year and a half.
"I love coffee table books, but I also love the web. I have never seen anything close to a coffee table book on line," commented Perez from his Los Angeles home..
"I think Chris, through his incredible design sense fully captures the look and feel of a book-taking my images and enhancing them through rich design and typography," says Perez.
The site which represents three years worth of summer images, was published in less than a month from editorial meetings to actual publication.
"The colour photography is engaging and rich. Its a terrific opportunity to work with these images and present them to the large audience that the Internet can bring. People who do not understand the Internet often remark about the obscene content; however, I am very proud to be part of this website which brings classic and beautiful photographs to the viewer," remarks Curry.
Perez, has been shooting for about five years and is known for his rich color and sense of composition and design. He is an expert at shooting in natural light, combining beautiful models in breath-taking locales. His work has appeared in a number of magazines, calendars, and advertisements. He's worked with celebrities on such shows as "The Young and the Restless," "Baywatch," and "Sunset Beach."
"Boys of Summer" is part of viewfinder.net the longtime permanent location of Imagery & Models: The Work of P. Michael Perez. It can be found at www.viewfinder.net.
