I have never been to Africa, so my mental images come from books movies and pictures. Those mental images have been changed by Ms. Gilbert's book.
I now see Africa in a different light, and have a greater appreciation for its beauty and complexity.
This book immediately caught my eye. The photograph on the cover is beautiful, but beyond that, I noticed the camera angle was looking up to its subject (as opposed to "down on"). The second thing I noticed was the text. In the other books often the biggest word on the cover was the name of the photojournalist. A picture says a thousand words, and I liked what this picture was saying.
As I paged through the book I grew even more impressed. The photography is absolutely stunning, and the story told through the pictures and their captions is deeply moving, a testament to the author's humbleness and integrity, not to mention *talent.*
If you're looking for a coffee table book on traditional African tribal culture, this is the one to get.
Incredible story of a young woman, a pioneer of sorts followed her dream and passion to bring light of this important cultural which is rapidly changing, a delightful and inspiring "can-do" attitude which would fuel any hearts inspirational desire, seek your best!
