If you have been in the photography world for even a week, you know who Art Wolfe is. In Photographs from the Edge, Art showcases hundred’s of photographs he has taken throughout the world in an attempt to capture an “extraordinary world”.
Pictures are separated into the year they were taken and each picture includes what was used to shoot the picture, a blurb of what inspired the picture, photo tip, and nature of the photo. This really allows you to understand what his intent was when shooting the scene and how you can attempt to recreate it if you find yourself in the same set of circumstances.
This is an amazing complication of images with a behind the scenes look that will just take your breath away and should be on every photographer’s bookshelf whether they are an amateur or professional.
