In Photographs from the Edge: A Master Photographer's Insights on Capturing an Extraordinary World, just the photographs alone are worth a sit-down and flip-through. But each picture is accompanied by three things -
- A journal-like story about the picture itself - where it was taken, when - a bit of background information.
- "The Nature of the Photos" - a brief paragraph about the area the photo was taken in, something about the subject - a quick snippet.
- "Photo tip" - a how-to on photography and how it applies to that particular picture.
Art Wolfe, the photographer, along with Rob Sheppard, have put together a book which will take hours to go through. And then hours running outside to try some of the tips and hints in the book. A great book to sit down with a cup of tea and slowly go from page to page, savoring the visual impact of each photograph.
This is a must have for any would-be photographer, armchair traveler or a combination of the two.
