The gift book for all photographers.
on November 30, 2009
I spent the weekend reviewing the images in this book. What a treat it was. It's not just another collection of the same images we have come to see again and again.
The book delves deep into to the archives of the National Geographic society to find images that represent all aspects of their collection. What a great variety of images, photographers and styles, all held together and presented in this beautiful book.
It's hard to say what I liked best, there is just so much to choose from, Old B&W, autochrome plates and both 35 mm and digital photography. Such beautiful Images -and not the ones that are published over and over. they took me into what it must be like to work there, behind the scenes.
If you know anyone who loves photography this is the gift to buy them this holiday season
