My review of Photographs from the Edge by Art Wolfe

Photographs from the Edge: A Master Photographer's Insights on Capturing an Extraordinary World

Photographs from the Edge: A Master Photographer's Insights on Capturing an Extraordinary World

How excited I was to get this book to read and review! I absolutely love photography and nature so this book was perfect for me! I don't think I had heard of Art Wolfe before but I was delighted to look through this book and follow his photographic career through the past years. This book is arranged chronologically which is very interesting. I love how each picture includes a description and a story behind the capturing of it. The photographs are beautiful tributes to the amazing world around us. Art Wolfe has taken such fascinating pictures of animals, people and nature which will surely amaze and delight you. This book will not disappoint! Excellent coffee table book and gift! 
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my review. 

With more than 500,000 books sold, celebrated nature photographer Art Wolfe recounts the stories and techniques behind the images of his forty-year career around the world.

Legendary photographer Art Wolfe presents an intimate behind-the-scenes guide to the experiences, decisions, and methods that have influenced forty years of stunning images captured around the world. Wolfe and co-author Rob Sheppard transport readers on a global journey, while carrying on a dialog about photography, tools and process, world travel, close calls, and photographic opportunities both taken and missed. From the rich sights and smells of the Pushkar Camel Fair to the exact moment when a polar bear and her cubs leave their arctic den,Photographs from the Edge represents the instances when circumstance, light, and subject miraculously collide to form an iconic image.  Many of these photographs can never be duplicated as cultures and landscapes are transformed and wildlife diminishes or disappears all together. No matter his subject, Wolfe regales us with the stories behind the photographs and helps us experience life on the world's most unique photo safari. Photographs from the Edge is a lifetime of experience distilled into a rich photographic education.
