Sandy Baum received his architectural degree from Washington University's School of Architecture in Saint Louis, Missouri. Prior to moving to Mexico, he was a project manager doing residential, retail and commercial construction in Arizona and California. His detail orientation drives his photography as he draws attention to items that people walk by daily and normally go unnoticed. His photographs challenge people to see with their eyes, to be more aware of their everyday surroundings. Sandy is the author of six previous books by Schiffer Publishing, four dealing with San Miguel de Allende? architecture, details and color. His fifth book, Hammered Copper, is about Santa Clara del Cobre. His sixth book, The William Spratling Legacy, is about a gringo from New Orleans who started the silver industry in Taxco in 1930. Sandy lives in San Miguel de Allende, in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico.
