Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This stunning volume was the gift book of the year when it first published, and the images that grace its pages remain iconic. From the famous Afghan girl whose haunting green eyes stare out from the books cover, and her poignant story that captured the worlds interest, to award-winning photography culled from the Societys vast archives, The Photographs offers readers an inside look at National Geographic and a sharp-eyed view of the world. The book showcases the skill and imagination of such notable Geographic photographers as David Doubilet, William Albert Allard, Sam Abell, Jim Stanfield, Jodi Cobb, Jim Brandenburg, David Alan Harvey, and many more. They share their techniques, as well as personal and colorful anecdotes about individual images and their adventures in the field—sometimes humorous, sometimes terrifying, always vividly compelling. Author Leah Bendavid-Val writes about the photographers achievements from technical, journalistic, and artistic perspectives.

Five chapters cover core National Geographic themes—wildlife on land and water; cultures in the United States and around the world; and science, from astronomy to archaeology to the human senses. The photographs in each chapter capture rare moments in nature and the lives of animals, along with defining events in the lives of people everywhere. This exquisite collection is as elegant as it is timeless.

Book News Annotation:

The classic volume of award winning photographs from the Society's whole history is reprinted in a smaller size with a smaller (relative) price. The photographs are supported with essays on the photographers and captions explaining the context and significance of the images and sometimes technical or other aspects of getting the shot. The sections are then and now, faraway places, in the wild, underwater, the sciences, and in the US. There is no index. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
