Together with her previous book Ann Arbor, renowned photographer Cynthia Davis offers a look at the world unlike any other. Davis, a photographer with the soul of a painter, turns her artist's eye on Saugatuck-Douglas in these remarkable hand-altered Polaroid photographs.

Saugatuck and Douglas are known to almost everyone in Michigan and many visitors from Chicagoland and neighboring states as quaint artist communities that are home to shops, galleries, B&Bs, and interesting establishments such as Hoopdee Scootee, Loaf and Mug, Kilwin's, Old Post Office Shop, and the Kirby House.

Davis captures these Michigan landmarks in her unique pictures, which she creates by manipulating the gel-like chemicals in Polaroid photographs while they're still developing. This imbues her work with a dreamlike quality, somewhere between photorealism and impressionist painting.

Anyone who has visited Michigan's west coast will love Davis's evocative and colorful renditions of these picturesque towns.

Cynthia Davis has won over 100 major awards and has exhibited in numerous shows in galleries, universities, and museums, as well as major art festivals around the country. She lives in Ann Arbor.
