    National Geographic Asia & Oceania
    For over five generations, National Geographic magazine has dazzled and educated people with its incredible photographs and gripping stories of all corners and oceans of the Earth. Inspired from our monumental Around the World in 125 Years, this volume curates over 250 captivating images, sourced directly from the National Geographic archives. Traversing travel, wildlife, science, history, culture, and conservation, this compendium is in equal parts a breathtaking homage to the kaleidoscopic wonders of Asia and Oceania, and a unique tribute to the world's most famous photography magazine.

    Split into geographical sections-Middle East, South, Southeast, North and East Asia, as well as Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, and the Pacific and South Pacific Islands- our trans-continental journey through time and space spans evocative black-and-white pictures to autochromes, from the golden age of Kodachromes to digital. Along the way, we tread the mile-long rock cleft leading up to the singular approach to the lost city of Petra; take in the majesty of the Taj Mahal; get uncomfortably close and personal with Kamchatka brown bears; discover Japan's 'naked festival' where men heedlessly plunge into darkness wearing next to nothing; and come nose to nose with gray reef sharks in the waters of the Marshall Islands. Photographers featured include Steve McCurry, David Doubilet, Jodi Cobb, and Frans Lanting.

    Readers will discover how National Geographic evolved from presenting a romantic view of the continent for its armchair travelers, long before the Travel Channel and Google Images, to edgier stories reflecting overcrowded cities, rural hardship, and environmental threats. Complete with prime examples of the magazine's revered and groundbreaking underwater and wildlife photography, this book is both a window to the world and a cultural investment to be cherished and shared.

  • Seeing Science: How Photography Reveals the Universe
    Seeing Science: How Photography Reveals the Universe
    Seeing Science offers an insightful and reader-friendly collection of essays and pictures about photography's role in visualizing science and building human knowledge-from micro to macro levels and everything in between.

    Photography and science have long been intertwined, helping to shape the way we look at the world. Scientists use photography as a way to gather information, explore, and learn, but just as important, photography is also used to promote scientific advances and has long served as an interface between the sciences and the public. Our understanding of outer space depends on images sent to Earth from the Hubble Space Telescope, just as our understanding of our own bodies depends on X-rays. Images make visible what lies beyond human perception.

    Science is less an edifice of facts than a process of discovery and inquiry. In this way, it is not dissimilar to art; artists have engaged with some of the same scientific principles, using photography to imagine the world differently and present us with new experiences and ways of seeing. This volume presents both perspectives exploring how science is made perceptible, featuring over three hundred images and sixty short texts. Together they engage readers in a timely exploration of the extent to which our knowledge is formed and transformed through our interactions with photographic imagery.

  • Self Portrait
    Self Portrait
    From a childhood in London orphanages to half a century in New Zealand photographing wine-makers and artists, children and kuia, Marti Friedlander has lived a rich life - one defined by the art of looking, seeing, capturing on film. In Self-Portrait, Marti tells her story for the first time. As unflinching and clear in prose as in her photographs, she describes growing up in a London orphanage, being Jewish, working in a Kensington photography studio, marrying a New Zealander and moving to a challenging new country. Here she spent her life photographing the ordinary and the extraordinary, protests and politicians, balloons and beaches. Seeing with a stranger's eye, Marti Friedlander describes how she captured the transformation of New Zealand's life over more than fifty years. This book is a rich meditation on one woman's photographic journey through the twentieth century.

    Strong Is the New Pretty
    Inspired by the popular photo project of the same title that went viral in the autumn of 2015, Strong Is the New Pretty is a photo-driven book comprised of over a hundred high-quality black-and-white and color images (with minimal text) of fierce and joyful girls-a celebration of what it means to be strong (whether athletic, bookish, brainy, brave, loyal, or courageous). The photographs champion the message that girls are perfect in their imperfection; beautiful in their chaotic, authentic lives; and empowered by their strength instead of their looks. They are messy. They are loud. Wild. Full of life. Adventurous. Silly. Funny. Strong.

  • Trees: Between Heaven and Earth
    Trees: Between Heaven and Earth
    Art Wolfe's immersive photos capture the wonder humans have felt about trees for millennia.

    From the biblical Tree of Life to the Native American Tree of Peace, trees have played an archetypal role in human culture and spirituality since time immemorial. An integral part of a variety of faiths-from Buddhism and Hinduism to Native American and aboriginal religions-trees were venerated long before any written historical records existed.

    Through the vivid images of legendary photographer Art Wolfe, Trees focuses on both individual specimens and entire forests, and offers a sweeping yet intimate look at an arboreal world that spans six continents. Author Gregory McNamee weaves a diverse and global account of the myths, cultures, and traditions that convey the long-standing symbiosis between trees and humans, and renowned ethnobotanist Wade Davis anchors the text with a penetrating introduction. Humans have always shared this planet with trees, and Trees by Art Wolfe is a breathtaking journey through and homage to that relationship and its past, present, and future.
