Here is something different for a change. I picked this some a few weeks ago but only got around to reviewing today.
But of course anything by National Geographic is always good. I’ve been a big fan of their work as well as they contribution to charity as well as environmental work.
This is one of their latest coffee table photo books show casing another dazzling collection of photos from the archive chosen by Annie Griffihs. Each work is commented by her and credit is given to the photographer.
Here is a short Bio about her taken from her website
Annie Griffiths was one of the first women photographers to work for National Geographic. She has photographed dozens of magazine and book projects for the Society, including National Geographic Magazine stories on Lawrence of Arabia, Baja California, Israels Galilee, Petra, Sydney, and Jerusalem. Annies work has also appeared in LIFE, Geo, Smithsonian, Merian, Paris Match, Stern, and many other publications. She devotes a portion of each year to producing fundraising images for aid organizations, including Church World Service and Habitat for Humanity.
Annie has received awards from the National Press Photographers Association, the Associated Press, the National Organization of Women, and the White House News Photographers Association. She is a Fellow with the International League of Conservation Photographers. With a grant from National Geographic, Annie and author Barbara Kingsolver created Last Stand: Americas Virgin Lands. Proceeds from the book have raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for land conservation grants.
Annies photographs have been exhibited in New York, Washington, Moscow, Tokyo
and Perpignon. She has recently completed a photo memoir of her life on the road as both a photographer and a mother.
