National Geographic. Around the World in 125 Years. Europe Hardcover – October 31, 2017
Enhance your purchase
For over five generations, National Geographic magazine has dazzled and educated its readers with incredible photography and gripping stories spanning the four corners of the earth and the deepest oceans. Inspired by our monumental Around the World in 125 Years, this volume curates over 200 captivating images, sourced directly from the National Geographic historical archives, including almost 40 new photographs. Traversing travel, history, culture, social documentary, and conservation, this compendium is in equal parts a breathtaking homage to the spirit and diversity of Europe, and a unique tribute to the world’s most famous photography magazine.
National Geographic pioneered the aesthetic of the photo essay, while continually pushing the medium's technical boundaries, to both entertain and enlighten its millions of loyal readers. Our trans-continental journey through time and space spans across all corners of Europe, from the snow-capped peaks of Finland to the frothy foam parties of Ibiza, from the serene blue waters of the Greek Islands to the Lascaux cave paintings of Southern France. We witness the hair-rising eruption of Surtsey in Iceland, where lightning rips through the volcano’s clouds in otherworldly hues of purple; lose ourselves among flowers and babushka-wrapped heads in Russia’s Volgograd marketplace; and tread carefully behind climbers across a crevasse in the Bernese Oberland. Along the way, we absorb the culture of the some of the world’s greatest cities including Paris, Rome, Berlin, London, Vienna, Stockholm, Moscow, and many others.
National Geographic: Europe leaves no stone unturned in its ultimate voyage through the precious jewels and hidden facets of the European continent. From evocative early black-and-white pictures to autochromes, from the golden age of Kodachromes to digital, this is both a celebration of the power of photography and a unique trip to the soul of Europe.

Leider empfinde ich viele der Bilder als unspäktakülär und uninteressant. Selbstverständlich sind einige herrvoragende Bilder dabei, allerdings sind das nur wenige und die meisten davon kann man bereits aus der Produktvorschau entnehmen. Wer denkt dass das Buch voller vergleichbarer Bilder ist, wie das von der Basilius-Kathedrale in Moskau, der wird leider enttäuscht.
Als Geschenk für Ausländer nicht wirklich geeignet. Das Buch ist eher was für Kenner der Fotografie. Der Laie wird leider enttäuscht.
