Photographs from the Edge

Photographs from the Edge: A Master Photographer’s Insights on Capturing an Extraordinary World by Art Wolfe (with Rob Sheppard) has just appeared on the horizon at the Ridley High School Library! Photographs.jpgFollowing a preface by co-author Rob Sheppard and an introduction by Art Wolfe, the book is broken out into four main sections: the 1980s, the 1990s, the 2000s, and the 2010s. Each section incorporates Wolfe’s best photographs from that time period, with a detailed explanatory essay as well as “The nature of the photo” and “Photo tip” sidebars accompanying each image. Photographs from the Edge is so much more than a collection of beautiful photographs; it’s a travelogue, how-to guide, history lesson, and career blueprint all in one stunning book. As you turn each page, you will discover a window to some of the true wonders of the world. Wolfe’s photographs will transport you visually, geographically, and culturally to places you have (probably) never been or even heard of!

Having recently seen the movie Everest, I was especially fascinated by Art Wolfe’s breathtaking images of mountain ranges around the globe, from Alaska to Ecuador to Nepal. His wildlife photographs are also mesmerizing. What will be your favorite photograph? Open the book to discover it today!everestThanks to Blogging for Books for providing a copy of Photographs from the Edge in exchange for an honest review!
