Top ten travel books of 2012.

(Publishers Weekly)

This is a travel book unhinged from nostalgia and free from need to hype tradition. Filled with remarkable images, it's an ode to the NOW…

About the Author

Christopher Makos is a world-renowned photographer known for his work in portraiture, whose work has been exhibited at galleries and museums worldwide, appeared in 15-authored books, and in magazines internationally. He apprenticed with photographer Man Ray in Paris and collaborated with Andy Warhol, whom he showed how to use his first camera. He introduced Warhol to the work of both Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. Makos' work has been in the permanent collections of more than 100 museums and major private collections, including those of Malcolm Forbes, Pedro Almodovar, and Gianni Versace. Just a few of his previous books include 'Exhibitionism', a collaboration on studies of the male nude with Calvin Klein, 'Equipose', unique portraiture of horses published by Glitterati in 2005, and the soon-to-be-released 'Warhol In Context', which visually chronicles Makos' unique access to this major artist during the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Paul Solberg was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and studied anthropology and photography in Cape Town, South Africa and Bophuthatswana. BLOOM, Paul's first published book, explores Flower as Object. Makos calls Solberg 'the most modern photographer in America.' Solberg's photographs have been published in 'Publisher's Weekly', 'Elle', 'Lucky', and 'Ocean Drive', along with European publications, 'Vanidad' and 'Alter Ego'. Paul's work has been shown at Ralph Pucci in New York, The Young Gallery in Brussels, Flo Peter's Gallery in Hamburg, Baudoin Lebon in Paris, ARCO in Madrid and Paris Photo. Solberg currently resides in New York City.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I should preface this by saying I am enthralled by all things Swedish. I have been to Stockholm once, so as I read the Millennium trilogy I would try to envision what I had seen and match it with what I was reading. So, I had high expectations for the photos in this book. Some were wonderful, but there wasn't enough text to correlate with places written about in the books, in my opinion. Also, there were too many 'artsy' photos for my liking, i.e., a blurry photo of a subway tunnel. I still enjoyed it, I just thought there would be more narrative. Also, I didn't like the way the captions were grouped every so often--it made them hard to match up to the photos, and I couldn't find captions for some of the photos.
