Ansel Adams, Alice Gray

Ansel Adams photographed America's national parks before the project was suspended due to World War II

In 1941, Ansel Adams photographed America's national parks for a series of murals that would celebrate the country's natural heritage. Because of the escalation of World War II, the project was suspended after less than a year, but not before Adams had produced these images, which illustrate both his early innovations and the shape of his later, legendary career as America's foremost landscape photographer.

The invitation to photograph the nation's parklands was the perfect assignment for Adams, as it allowed him to express his deepest convictions as artist, conservationist, and citizen. These stunning photographs of the natural geysers and terraces in Yellowstone, the rocks and ravines in the Grand Canyon, the winding rivers and majestic mountains in Glacier and Grand Teton national parks, the mysterious Carlsbad Caverns, the architecture of ancient Indian villages, and many other evocative views of the American West demonstrate the genius of Adams' technical and aesthetic inventiveness.

In these glorious, seminal images we see the inspired reverence for the wilderness that has made Ansel Adams' work an enduring influence on environmentalism as well as art.

A selection of breathtaking images of the American landscape fills this lavishly produced volume

In 1941 Ansel Adams was hired by the United States Department of the Interior to photograph Americas national parks for a series of murals that would celebrate the countrys natural heritage. Because of the escalation of World War II, the project was suspended after less than a year, but not before Adams had produced this group of breathtaking images, which illustrate both his early innovations and the shape of his later, legendary career as Americas foremost landscape photographer.

The invitation to photograph the nations parklands was the perfect assignment for Adams, as it allowed him to express his deepest convictions as artist, conservationist, and citizen. These stunning photographs of the natural geysers and terraces in Yellowstone, the rocks and ravines in the Grand Canyon, the winding rivers and majestic mountains in Glacier and Grand Teton national parks, the mysterious Carlsbad Caverns, the architecture of ancient Indian villages, and many other evocative views of the American West demonstrate the genius of Adams technical and aesthetic inventiveness.

In these glorious, seminal images we see the inspired reverence for the wilderness that has made Ansel Adams work an enduring influence on the intertwining spirits of art and environmentalism, both so necessary for the preservation of our natural world.

One of the most prolific and highly acclaimed photographers of the twentieth century, Ansel Adams (1902-1984) is the author of more than a dozen books.

Sebastiao Salgado, Lella Salgado
ID: 9841
Видавництво: Taschen

Earth eternal. A photographic homage to our planet in its natural state

On a very fortuitous day in 1970, 26-year-old Sebastião Salgado held a camera for the first time. When he looked through the viewfinder, he experienced a revelation: suddenly life made sense. From that day onward — though it took years of hard work before he had the experience to earn his living as a photographer — the camera became his tool for interacting with the world. Salgado, who “always preferred the chiaroscuro palette of black-and-white images,” shot very little color in his early career before giving it up completely.

Raised on a farm in Brazil, Salgado possessed a deep love and respect for nature; he was also particularly sensitive to the ways in which human beings are affected by their often devastating socio-economic conditions. Of the myriad works Salgado has produced in his acclaimed career, three long-term projects stand out: Workers (1993), documenting the vanishing way of life of manual laborers across the world, Migrations (2000), a tribute to mass migration driven by hunger, natural disasters, environmental degradation and demographic pressure, and this new opus, GENESIS, the result of an epic eight-year expedition to rediscover the mountains, deserts and oceans, the animals and peoples that have so far escaped the imprint of modern society — the land and life of a still-pristine planet. “Some 46% of the planet is still as it was in the time of genesis,” Salgado reminds us. “We must preserve what exists.” The GENESIS project, along with the Salgados’ Instituto Terra, are dedicated to showing the beauty of our planet, reversing the damage done to it, and preserving it for the future.

Over 30 trips — travelled by foot, light aircraft, seagoing vessels, canoes, and even balloons, through extreme heat and cold and in sometimes dangerous conditions — Salgado created a collection of images showing us nature, animals, and indigenous peoples in breathtaking beauty. Mastering the monochrome with an extreme deftness to rival the virtuoso Ansel Adams, Salgado brings black-and-white photography to a new dimension; the tonal variations in his works, the contrasts of light and dark, recall the works of Old Masters such as Rembrandt and Georges de La Tour.

What does one discover in GENESIS? The animal species and volcanoes of the Galápagos; penguins, sea lions, cormorants, and whales of the Antarctic and South Atlantic; Brazilian alligators and jaguars; African lions, leopards, and elephants; the isolated Zo’é tribe deep in the Amazon jungle; the Stone Age Korowai people of West Papua; nomadic Dinka cattle farmers in Sudan; Nenet nomads and their reindeer herds in the Arctic Circle; Mentawai jungle communities on islands west of Sumatra; the icebergs of the Antarctic; the volcanoes of Central Africa and the Kamchatka Peninsula; Saharan deserts; the Negro and Juruá rivers in the Amazon; the ravines of the Grand Canyon; the glaciers of Alaska... and beyond. Having dedicated so much time, energy, and passion to the making of this work, Salgado likens GENESIS to “my love letter to the planet.”

Whereas the limited Collector’s Edition is conceived like a large-format portfolio that meanders across the planet, this unlimited book presents a selection of photographs arranged in five chapters geographically: Planet South, Sanctuaries, Africa, Northern Spaces, Amazonia and Pantanal. Each in its own way, this book and the Collector’s edition — both edited and designed by Lélia Wanick Salgado — pay homage to Salgado’s triumphant and unparalleled GENESIS project.

The photographer:

Sebastião Salgado began his career as a professional photographer in Paris in 1973 and subsequently worked with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma and Magnum Photos. In 1994 he and his wife Lélia created Amazonas images, which exclusively handles his work. Salgado’s photographic projects have been featured in many exhibitions as well as books, including Other Americas (1986), Sahel, L'Homme en détresse (1986), Workers (1993), Terra (1997), Migrations (2000), The Children (2000) and Africa (2007).

The editor and author:

Lélia Wanick Salgado studied architecture and urban planning in Paris. Her interest in photography started in 1970. In the 1980s she moved on to conceiving and designing photography books and organizing exhibitions, numerous of them on Sebastião Salgado. Since 1994 Lélia Wanick Salgado has been the director of Amazonas images.

Tom Beard, Contributions by The United States Lighthouse Society
ID: 16604
Видавництво: Rizzoli

A spectacular collection of America’s most iconic and stunning lighthouses. Through gorgeous photography, this book celebrates these unique and magnificent beacons and their history. The construction of lighthouses began as this new nation’s first public-works project in 1789 and established the United States as a maritime world power by making ports safe for navigation. These structures—many still active and serving their original purpose even in the era of global positioning systems—are living museums, yet they often prove difficult to access for visitors due to their necessary remoteness. From Maine’s West Quoddy Head on the easternmost headlands to the iconic Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, and the West Coast lighthouses from New Point Loma to New Dungeness and Michigan’s Grand Haven Pier Lighthouse, the images here will delight both the armchair traveler and those who have taken the back roads or trekked across sandy beaches to visit these special and often artful buildings. This is a great gift for lovers of lighthouses, boaters, and those who live or dream of living on the seashore.

About the Authors:

Lieutenant Commander Tom Beard, USCG (Retired), split his military flying career between a Vietnam tour as a Navy carrier pilot and work as a Coast Guard rescue pilot, after which he received academic training as a historian specializing in American maritime history. 
The United States Lighthouse Society is a nonprofit historical and educational organization incorporated to educate, inform, and entertain those who are interested in lighthouses.

Mountains, one of nature’s greatest masterpieces, in their rugged beauty, breathtaking views from the top, clear air, green pastures, mountain lakes and glaciers, have captivated mankind all along. Climbing mountains or just gazing at their majestic splendour causes us to slow down and contemplate, maybe even giving us a little serenity.

Photographer Tim Hall beautifully captures the powerful solace of mountains in his images. He often chooses to shoot in dramatic weather, making his work and the photographed mountains look even more stunning and transcendent. The intention to strike an emotional or spiritual chord is evident in much of his landscape work, which is inspired by Rothko and Turner. The influence of painting in his work stems from his studies of Art History at Manchester University.

Mountains: Beyond the Clouds presents the extensive Alpine mountain range, including famous landmarks such as the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, and the Dolomites. 

About the Author:
 
Tim Hall is a British Fine Art Photographer, who specializes in travel, landscape, and portraiture. His drive to see the world through the lens of a camera was inspired by the romance of 19th-century travellers and more recently, National Geographic photographers. The work is a lyrical response to the people and places that he has visited and shows his deep interest in the urban and natural world as well as the people who inhabit them. With over 20 years of experience as a project-based photographer, his works are often conceived as a series, exhibited as a collective body, or bought as single pieces. Tim lives in London and is represented by contemporary art galleries across Europe, South East Asia, and the USA.

Dealing with the most famous peaks on the planet, divided into the various continents, the book presents, among others, the peaks of the Himalayas and the Karakorum, which form “the roof of the world”. And of course, there is Patagonia, an extreme place, a frontier of the imagination full of natural scenarios that seem to be the beginning and the end of everything.

Looking through Mountains, you will discover a new dimension of the African continent, from the sheer cliffs of the Atlas canyons to the snows of Kilimanjaro and Ruwenzori. The great north of Alaska will offer visions of that kingdom of frost over which Denali, the highest mountain on the North American continent, towers over 6,000 metres. Europe and the Alps, with the magic of the Dolomites ― a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009 ― will close the extraordinary journey between the peaks that have always fascinated man. If you don't suffer from vertigo, we will take you really high up.

The reader will be accompanied on this extraordinary adventure by famous fellow travellers who were fascinated by the power of the mountains and whose immortal pages they left behind: quotations from Dante Alighieri, John Muir, Paulo Coelho, Victor Hugo, Lord Byron, Jane Austen, Friedrich Nietzsche, William Shakespeare, Jeanne Moreau, J.R.R Tolkien and Haruki Murakami will be juxtaposed with the most spectacular images of these rock formations that are scattered over the entire surface of the Earth.

A resident of Salzburg, Austria, Günter Baumgartner is a content agency owner and (sports) journalist. He has a soft spot for all types of winter sports, ball games, and American sports. In his spare time, he can be found on ski slopes or his mountain bike almost as often as on tennis and squash courts or the soccer field. He also enjoys playing both indoor hockey and ice hockey.

Born in Upper Austria, Marlies Czerny has climbed all 82 four-thousand-meter peaks in the Alps and loves exploring through mountaineering and paragliding and telling stories about her experiences.

Jonathan Franklin is an author and investigative reporter based in South America. As a correspondent for The Guardian, Washington Post, and Sydney Morning Herald, he has covered the continent's biggest news stories over the past three decades. Born and raised in the mountains of New Hampshire, he started skiing soon after walking and has explored the slopes of the Andes in the best—and worst—conditions. His only advice to newbies south of the equator is to slather on the sunblock—you won't believe how sunny these slopes get. Franklin's books cover extreme survival and include the saga of the trapped Chilean miners (33 Men) and a fisherman lost at sea for 14 months (438 Days).

Sam Haddad is a freelance journalist specializing in action sports (especially snowboarding and surfing), responsible travel, and the environment, with bylines in The Guardian, 1843, Raconteur, and Huck Magazine, among others.

He dreams big with regular endurance challenges, and his camera usually comes along for the ride.

Born in Vienna, Florian Scheimpflug has traveled the world in search of the best rock formations. However, he is just as fond of the snow. To be close to the mountains, the director and author (Dem Genuss auf der Spur: 50 Skitouren in den österreichischen Alpen) has lived in Hallein since 2017.

Rachel Taylor is an experienced media and communications professional exploring the practice of regenerative storytelling. She shapes and supports projects seeding regenerative narratives, disrupting degenerative paradigms, and leveraging storytelling that’s joyful, hopeful, and celebratory.

Cold-water surfing, the most remote surf spots, spectacular photography, illustrations, and custom boards: Surf Odyssey documents the modern cult of surfing as its own subculture and way of life.

There’s much more to surfing than palm trees and beach boy clichés. Beyond mainstream surfing lies an uncharted sea of creativity, community, and independence that celebrates the true nature of surfing. Surf Odyssey depicts this contemporary surf culture: the adrenaline-rush of cold-water surfing, the daunting treks through the terrain of Africa balanced by the welcoming Temple of Enthusiasm in Bali, the quest to find nature in its purest form, and the reward of finding oneself. Stunning images from pioneering outdoor photographers and poignant portraits of movers and shakers within the scene narrate a tale of wave-riding that steps away from social norms and into aquatic swells of adventure.

Revealing surfers to be multifaceted spirits, Surf Odyssey underlines the natural connections between environmental responsibility and the thrill of embracing an unbroken wall of water whilst showcasing the products and places that comprise this unique community.

Multitalented graphic artist, Andrew Groves, is also a passionate surfer and deeply involved in the surfing scene. The designer has a special focus on surfing and outdoor lifestyles; his illustrations have graced the pages of publications like the New York Times, Huck Magazine, the New Yorker, GQ, Wired, and the Guardian. In 2011, he founded Miscellaneous Adventures, a project for which he hand-carves practical objects from wood.

On 24 February 2022, the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops began. Since then, Russia's war of aggression has continued with increasing ferocity and destruction. Millions of Ukrainians have fled to neighbouring European countries. Ukraine is now a country caught between two stools: on the one hand, it is striving for rapprochement with NATO and the EU; on the other hand, good relations with Russia have also always been of fundamental importance to the country.

This is a picture book about a landscape and its country, which is going through dark times and is currently moving the whole world. Here we take a look at the beauty and the integrity of Ukraine.

The Ukrainian landscape is characterised by steppes, plateaus, lowlands and mountains. The Lemurian Lake in the south of Ukraine impresses with its pink colour, as it has a higher salt content than the Dead Sea. The mountain ranges of the Carpathians in the west of Ukraine captivate with their wonderful wild beauty. The Ukrainian steppe is part of the great Eurasian steppe, which runs through several countries of Eastern Europe and used to be the home of the Cossacks. The country is also criss-crossed by numerous river courses, with the Dnieper, Donets and Dniester rivers, which flow into the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, being among the most significant.

Unparalleled scale, out-of-this-world colours and unique landscape shots from above make this book a tribute to the beauty of the Ukrainian landscape.

_A declaration of love by the young, award-winning Ukrainian photographer Yevhen Samuchenko to his homeland in dark times
_An opulent illustrated book that shows the beauty, diversity and richness of colour of the Ukrainian landscape
_By looking down on one, the dimensions of Ukraine as one of the largest European countries are made visible

A visual exploration of fabled landscapes and historical gems, this magnificent volume celebrates the rich culture of AlUla, through the lens of Gilles Bensimon.

The AlUla valley is a natural, historical, and cultural site in northwestern Arabia, located on the ancient Incense Route. It features grandiose natural landscapes, oases, and ancient settlements dating back 8,000 years. Home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hegra -- where exceptionally preserved tombs of the Nabataean age show elaborate facades cut out of sandstone outcrops -- it's a hidden treasure awaiting to be discovered.

A journey through time and the senses, this oversized tome offers the unique experience of traveling to a mythical land and little-known paradise, bringing alive the Lihyanite, Dadanite, Nabataean, and Pre-Islamic times from AlUla's past through to its present day.

Exclusive images by the acclaimed photographer Gilles Bensimon reveal the poetic aspects and magnificence of age-old desert landscapes and highlight the lives they are home to. From lush green oases to barren expanses; from drifting sand to basalt uplands; from geomorphological wonders to millennia-old inscriptions, these are just some of the unforgettable scenes of AlUla.

Ansel Adams
ID: 7997
Видавництво: Little, Brown Book Group

For many people images of the major national parks in the US exist in the mind's eye as Ansel Adams photographs.

A dedicated environmentalist as well as a renowned artist, he was one of the 20th century's most ardent champions of the parks system. Through his photos, essays and letter-writing campaigns, he helped create new parks and better protect existing ones. He worked in more than 40 national parks over 50 years - including Shenandoah, the Great Smoky Mountains and Acadia in the East - and his work in the California High Sierra resulted in some of the most indelible images of the natural world ever made with a camera. 50 of the images in this volume have not been published in any authorized Ansel Adams book previously; many more are rarely seen. A substantial essay by photographic critic and historian Richard B. Woodward lays out Adams' significant role in tracing the history of American conservation.

The selection of photographs was made by Andrea G. Stillman, Adams' assistant late in life and a foremost expert on his work. A group of thumbnail images with brief narratives, enlivened by quotations from Adams, appears at the back of the book.
