Description
Spanning almost a century of global upheaval and human drama, this beautifully presented book follows the careers of a stellar quartet of National Geographic photographers who together recorded a remarkable era. The book is divided into four parts, each devoted to one man's life and work, with an essay by a close associate or a loved one and some 50 pages of images, many of which lay hidden in National Geographic archives for decades. Maynard Owen Williams observes elephants at work in 1921 India; Luis Marsden snaps a beautiful girl bathing in El Salvador in 1943; Volkmar Wentzel catches Albert Schweitzer playing with kittens in Gabon in 1952; and Tom Abercrombie finds visual poetry in a harbor in 1972 Algiers.
