Jacqueline Spafford and Jeffrey Klee, SAHARA Co-Editors | Jan 03, 2020
In past Highlight features we’ve looked at the big picture, such as aerial views and streetscapes. This month we’re zooming in on the details, of which the SAHARA collection has thousands. Many of our contributors document every part of a site or building, from the long view down to functional and decorative details. The images below are a very small representation of what the collection holds.
Many thanks to our contributors, as always.
