Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment
Whether you love great photos, wonderful artwork, or an exceptional coffee table book, this National Geographic volume Women of Vision will astound you. The photos are simply awesome, every single one of them, something you would expect from such a publication. The works of seventeen women staff photographers on assignment are featured here and without exception all are artists, superb photographers and whose eyes see pictures invisible to others and record them through their photographic media. Everyone is different and unique in her style and interest: some prefer and excel in landscapes, others in people, and still others in recording controversial subjects (e.g. child marriages or polygamy). This book is a high-end production mostly with full-page or page-and-a-half size photographs, all in color and both technically and artistically superior. Every photographer is introduced by a short page-long description of her style, bio and quotes. In the typical style of their publications, each photo has a good, appropriate caption and a paragraph nearby describing the circumstances of that photo. These are brief and informative, without which the photo would not be complete. This volume will be the masterpiece of the most prestigious coffee tables and art book collections.
