Synopses & Reviews
National Geographic The Photographs is a captivating, full-color presentation of National Geographic magazines best and most memorable photographs of the last 25 years, the facts behind them, and the stories of the men and women who took them.
Page after page of this beautiful, large-format book presents stunning images that capture the major themes of the National Geographic Society: wildlife on land and underwater, cultures in the United States and around the world, and science—from astronomy and archaeology to the human senses. Accompanying the images are the photographers accounts of the techniques they used and their various adventures in the field—sometimes humorous, sometimes terrifying, always vividly compelling. National Geographic The Photographs also includes an introductory chapter that chronicles the evolution of the photographic principles that have kept National Geographic at the forefront of the field and presents the visionaries who believed that photography had the power to tell important truths.
Photographs from the archives of "National Geographic" share an array of work reflecting the themes of The Land, Underwater, Science, The United States, and The World--by some of the world's finest photographers.
