    1. This is a very rare book as far as Asia is concerned.This book not only has a collection of photographs but also tells about the photographers and their assignment.The book makes you love photos.

    2. Very informative considering how much of the book is taken up by photographs. Great short history of the National Geographic and it's photographers. I'll probably be reading quite a few of their biographies or memoirs if I can find them.

    3. It pretty much goes without saying that the photography in this book is fantastic (it's some of the best of National Geographic, after all), but what really makes it is the accompanying text -- details about how a shot was set up, or how and where the photographer preferred to work, or what was new and innovative in the field at the time. It makes for not just a pretty read but also a really interesting one.

    4. This is one example of kind of books that you don't want to come to the end when you start. You want to get more and more of beautiful, charming, and educating photos with very nice articles having amazing stories and lessons.I really admire what National Geographic did and is doing for the humanity.I enjoyed both the photos and the articles of this book.

    5. The Photographs offers readers an inside look at National Geographic and a sharp-eyed view of the world. The book showcases the skill and imagination of such notable Geographic photographers as David Doubilet, William Albert Allard, Sam Abell, Jim Stanfield, Jodi Cobb, Jim Brandenburg, David Alan Harvey, and many more. They share their techniques, as well as personal and colorful anecdotes about individual images and their adventures in the field—sometimes humorous, sometimes terrifying, alway [...]

    6. I wanted to hear more back stories to the pictures. When the photographers were describing where they went and what they saw I wanted the pictures to be corresponding on the next page./ I wrote the 1st half of this review when I had the book put into the can't finish section and gave it two stars. I have finished it. I retract my 1st option and move it up to 4 stars. Goes to show sometime you just have to be in the right mind set to enjoy certain things in life.

    7. The title photograph of this collection became iconic.The piercing eyes of Sharbat Gula,the Afghan refugee girl made her world famous when she was put on the cover of National Geographic in 1985.The back cover tells a different story,Sharbat Gul again,photographed decades later after having lived a life full of adversity.In between there are hundreds of memorable images including the wreck of the Titanic,wildlife,nature and much more.National Geographic has always excelled at photography and thi [...]

    8. O wydawnictwie National Geographic można pisać naprawdę długo. Nie ma chyba zbyt dużo ludzi, którzy o nim nie słyszeli. Wydawcy dbają, aby to co oddają nam, czytelnikom (i fotografom), w te łaknące coraz więcej i więcej łapska, zawsze charakteryzowało się wysoką jakością i kunsztem. Trwa to już tak długo, że można śmiało mówić o osobnym miejscu na kartach historii. A "National Geographic oczami fotografów" właśnie jest swego rodzaju "podręcznikiem historii".Nie jes [...]

    9. Amazing, breathtaking, and Beautiful. I hope someday I can take just one picture as good as these.These photographers from the early 1900's loved their work. They lugged their heavy and fragile equipment around in the most remote areas. They even had thier developing chemicals and built improvised dark rooms. What an inspiration of commitment. I am amazed at the ability and talent of Charles Martin, who was able to take the first color photographs underwater of fish swimming. He had to get every [...]

    10. I have always thought that National Geographic has amazing photography. My boyfriend loves the magazine, so I got this book for him. The photos are split up into different themes, and they were more focused on gritty reality than beautiful, sweeping epic visionaries. Maybe it was just the last NG book I looked at, but I certainly remember a different feel to those photos. Not that these photos aren't excellent, though.Be sure to read the text as well, especially the little captions that tell you [...]

    11. As much as I enjoyed some of the photos in this book, I feel that it could have done with some major editing since it clearly lacked any sort of organization. Not only did the writing not match up with the photos alongside it in many cases, but a lot of the discussed photos were not even included in the book altogether! In a lot of ways I feel like they could have just left out the writing entirely and stuck with captions, as that would have left more room for photos and I wouldn't have wasted m [...]

    12. Enjoyed this so so much! Fascinating and beautiful photos, many of which I will soon use as reference imagery for drawings. I really like the short essays about the photographers of the national geographic during the 70s-90s. Their stories are epic adventures part scientists discovering new species and pieceing together new frankenstein cameras and part journalists and anthropologists and adventures infiltrating unknown land and customs. Great!!!

    13. An absolutley beautiful collection of images. The best part is having information to put the images into context - the message, the reason, the situation where it had been captured and how the image had been captured.There are some of my favourite NG images in there but there are also a slew of new photographs that have gained a second look because of the stories that have been incorporated.This was a beautiful gift to have recieved.

    14. Simply excellent. Normally with photo-heavy books I skim over the text and only read captions. With this book, however, I read every single word and gained a wealth of knowledge regarding the history and philosophies of NatGeo. And the photos were soooo good. I loved this! Borrowed if from a library and am considering buying it for my own collection.

    15. A picture tells a thousand words well in this case it tells an epic a human epic. These pictures are of every conceivable emotions. What amazes me is the time when they were frozen in eternity did the photogrphers anticipated such moves or were they just lucky. And at times like this you know that there is a hand of god to guide you to immortality.

    16. Anyone wanting to take a deeper look at the our planet and it's inhabitants will find themselves trapped! This book was outstanding! I loved learning about the photos and the photographers and their amazing journey that they work hard to preserve the past- for the future gives great tips for photography taking as well.

    17. National Geographic: The Photographs by Leah Bendavid-Val (National Geographic 1994) (778.9907). This is a huge coffee-table book and is quite simply the greatest collection of photographs ever assembled by National Geographic. My rating: 8/10, finished 1995.

    18. The range of emotions evoked by these photographs is staggering. What talent these photographers have to not only have the ability to share what they see, but to force their audience to stop and FEEL

    19. Really enjoyed this book. The back story on how the images came to be, the creative process descriptions and the personal artistic philosophies of the photographers made this book fascinating and Inspiring.

    20. Aww a true favorite, I read it as a kid, the photographes are absolutely beautiful and inspire a kid and show a glimpse of the world, very romantic haha.I reread it every year or two and the pictures and the stories they portray are mesmerizing, I wish I had this book next to me right now

    21. Not the selection of pictures. Prose narration and stories about individual photographers and National Geographic's photographic mission add to attraction and more about photographers and their stories would have been a nice addition.

    22. National Geographic is known for their outstanding photography, and this collection proves it. An amazing array of top notch photographs covering a wide range of subjects from the pages of the magazine.

    23. This book was a gift, and it's the perfect coffee table book. The pictures are incredible and tell real stories. The stories behind the photographs are given, and they are beautiful. It's wonderful to get a sense of past and present throughout the world.

    24. This is a nice little compact edition of some of best photographs taken by National Geographic Magazine. Included are essays grouping the stories which tell a bit about the changing nature of the magazine's editorial policies and the photographers they've worked with.

    25. The picture in the book were amazing.The book was mostly concentrating on how national geographic's photographer developed and what they faced. I learen that to be a photographer you need more than a "camera".

    26. Awesome collection of photographs one of the best in collection perfect coffee table bookFor any query mail at manish.ray03@gmail / write at facebook/raysclicks
