Having started in the photography business over 40 years ago as the assistant to the editor of National Geographic magazine and a member of their photographic staff, Steve Uzzell has continued his love of making images for national and international clients, and has garnered worldwide recognition and won numerous accolades, including ten prestigious Communication Arts awards.
As an inspirational speaker, Uzzell had given his Open Roads Open Minds – An Exploration of Creative Problem Solving presentation to over 460 organizations in all 50 American states, as well as three Canadian provinces and five other countries, to a combined audience of more than half a million people. And for 9 years he had dreamed of turning it into a book. He needed somebody to facilitate that, as his strenuous work schedule did not allow the time to do this himself. Dominique le Roux selected the key points and anecdotes from his talk and used these as the text to accompany a range of his superb images, and then herself designed and produced the long-anticipated book, which was made available for sale as an ebook in PDF form, as well as a softcover print edition.
