In 2013, nature and wildlife photographer, Lewis Kemper moved nearby the American River in Sacramento, CA. He immediately began photographing and documenting his explorations of the river by his home. "My Stretch of the River: A Photographers Journal" contains over 300 images of the scenery and wildlife he encountered over a one year period, narrated with journal entries about his experiences.

 

Come along on this multimedia adventure of still and video images captured from the land, the water and air.
