Photographs from the Edge; a book review
Photography lovers and nature lovers, have I got a book for you! Photographs from the Edge: A Master Photographer's Insights on Capturing an Extraordinary World by Art Wolfe with Rob Sheppard is out today, and it is beautiful!
Wolfe has traveled the world with his camera and tripod, visiting places most of us won't ever see. This book presents a collection of his work chronologically from the 1980s through January 2015.
The rich color and depth to his photographs is astounding as he presents landscapes, creatures, and cultures. Not only are the photographs themselves gorgeous, but each one includes a write up from Wolfe offering the story behind the picture, as well as a photo tip and the camera settings used to capture the image.
This is a book I will return to again and again for the cultural experience, the visual feast, and to soak up his photography knowledge, so I can apply it to my own work.
I received an advance-read copy of this book from the publisher, Amphoto Books, via Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review, and I have used affiliate links throughout this post. Please see my book review and affiliate disclaimer.
