We love to travel and love taking photos. Both are what Conde Nast does best. And what better way to showcase their exquisite photos of worldwide locals than in this very special publication from Assouline: Conde Nast Traveler Photographs: 25th Anniversary Collection.
It is further enhanced by a wide range of outstanding, and many times, breathtaking masterpieces for this 25th anniversary collection.
The book is divided into four main sections: Moments, Monuments, Lives, and Landscapes. Each delights with unique perspectives captured by the lens to be shared with all who care to venture beyond their wildest imaginations.
Moments captures unique happenings experienced by man or beast. In this instance a wildebeest migration, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, and a Nambian boy experiencing rain after a two or three year drought. Many photographs have additional notes by the photographer with behind the scene facts and historic notations.
Monuments is a tribute to man’s ingenuity, patience, foresight and, in many cases, collective force. From a mosque in Abu Grab, United Arab Emirates, to a pagoda in Dunhuang, China. Actress Naomi Watts stands on one Chrysler Building gargoyle while the photographer shoots her from another; on the sixty-fifth floor, 665 feet above Lexington Avenue in New York City. Many precautions were taken in conjunction with a seven-figure insurance policy against liability. Ancient temple in Luxor, Egypt.
Lives provides glimpses into experiences of those in faraway places with cultures and practices unique and varied. Tariano tribesmen, Amazon Rain Forest, Brazil. In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, children customarily wear white on New Year’s Eve. Frolicking in the surf is an added bonus.
Landscapes speaks volumes for itself. Ice and sky, Narsaq Sound, Greenland. Elephants and men, Galle, Sri Lanka. Milford Sound, New Zealand. Halong Bay, Vietnam. Dragon’s blood trees, Socotra, Yemen. Ahios Petros Bay, Kyra Panagia Island, Northern Sporades, Greece.
Conde Nast Traveler Photography: 25th Anniversary Collection would be great as a gift for those who would appreciate traveling the world via photos.
