3.0 out of 5 stars Half Was Interesting 13 Mar. 2011
By Tante Maren - Published on
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
John Harrington's book, Photographs From The Edge Of Reality, was a very mixed bag for me. I enjoyed a good half of the stories and a little more than half of his photos. I suppose it's what is interesting to the reader, as to what you will enjoy in this book. The book contains 41 short stories accompanied by the photographs behind the stories.

Some of the photographs are breathtaking and deserve a full page, which is sad as many of these great photos get only an inch or two of page space. The photo John Harrington caught of the Harrier Jet lifting off is fantastic. Photos of The Rolling Stones, Cuba, Obama's Inauguration, the Native American's taken for The Smithsonian Books, Aretha Franklin, Atop the Golden Gate Bridge, Europe on a shoe string budget, Robert Plant, The Pentagon on 9-11, Stevie Wonder and the mother's at Arlington Cemetery are worthy of large full pages. The majority of the political and sports photos just didn't capture my interest.

The stories of Cuba and how John Harrington could not enter Cuba as a photographer or journalist, but easily as a tourist are interesting. I found it funny how Fidel never says no to the almighty tourist spending money. Sneeking into Mr. Harrington's personal film rolls and pulling them open, destroying the film to see what is on the film, by the Castro administration seems par for the course in a country with no personal freedoms. I also enjoyed the stories high atop the Golden Gate Bridge where Mr. Harrington spent time strapped up there with the painters. By the time they are done painting the long bridge, it's time to start again. The photographs Mr. Harrington caught looking down on the bridge are just breathtaking. Going to Europe on a shoestring budget was also interesting. Some of the people pretending they don't speak English just to mess with Americans was something I heard about from co-workers who have family that still live in Europe.

The final story about the 2 mothers visiting their young son's graves at Arlington Cemetery was just so touching. Mr. Harrington could not get a great shot, until both mothers were distracted by a recycle beep from his equipment, when he kept shooting. The photo shows that sometimes, the not posed for photo, catches the real image. I enjoyed a good half of the stories and photos, but his best photos should have been showcased on full pages, as they deserve and for these reasons I'm giving it 3 1/2 Stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars I want to be a Photo Journalist! :) 24 Mar. 2011

I want to be a Photo Journalist! :)

John Harrington's Photographs from the Edge of Reality: True Stories About Shooting on Location, Surviving, and Learning Along the Way is not a cliff-hanger that leaves one staring into a bottomless abyss, but does succeed in getting one's toes wet into what it would be like to be a somewhat elite (imo), sought-after, photo-journalist.

A wide and varied range of some of the most desired photographic assignments one can imagine -- or hope for. It seems, Harrington and his cameras and lenses have been just about everywhere -- except the moon. :)

Photos from the Edge of Reality is filled with wonderfully planned photos, light and airy styled commentaries - which is a plus, useful photographic tips, amazing tricks and secrets on how each amazingly wonderful assignment was accomplished and, sometimes, pulled off.

Even if one has no desire to be a photo-journalist, but loves to take photos, this is one book you will not want to pass up. Photos from the Edge of Reality also makes for a stylish gift or coffee table read for guests. Highly Recommended! --Katharena Eiermann, Nature Photographer, 2011
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting view about location shootings 20 Jan. 2013
By Deborah V - Published on
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
John Harrington is a news photographer and having been a Radio-Television-Film major I was interested in getting his perspective of behind the scene shoots. The book was an enjoyable read as Mr. Harrington full of interesting anecdotes, stories, memories and insight. Harrington's access to important figures of our time allows us to see a viewpoint that we wouldn't otherwise get reading a blog or newspaper.

I did find the pictures to be a big of a disappointment. Some of it was the color--it wasn't as vibrant as I would assume the photos would project. Perhaps less dialogue and more photos would have made a coffee table book! Regardless, the book is well worth looking at and reading from several view points--that of a radio-television-film major, a journalist, a photographer, a historian! The dialogue is engaging and you'll find yourself staring at some of the pictures with new "eyes!"

Format: Hardcover
This compilation of interesting and inspiring photos is an excellent reference for aspiring photographers. I may never travel to these locations or capture that perfect shot but Harrington's photos and stories will serve as a guide for my future photographic endeavors. I truly enjoyed the photos and text!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Insights 15 Jan. 2011
By Maclen - Published on
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Photographs From The Edge Of Reality will probably be more appropriate for the reader that has an interest in photography, someone who would be curious about the story behind capturing a shot.

There are many things this book is not.

This is not a coffee table book full of photographs of epic landscapes or the struggle between life and death. It's a relatively small book, measuring roughly 9" x 6" and the majority of the photographs don't cover an entire page.

There are no in-depth technical explanations detailing things such as camera settings or light metering, so this is also not a how-to book.

There is also no real order in which the photos and stories are presented. They are not in chronological order or organized by subject matter.

What this book is is an interesting insight into well-known photojournalist John Harrington's experiences; how he got his start and how luck and skill played a big part in his success. He doesn't go into technical detail about each photograph and jumps around chronologically which gives you the feeling that he's talking to a friend and reminiscing.

Having an interest in photography, I found it intriguing how he planned ahead and envisioned each shot, something that all photographers do. I also felt extremely envious of the places he's been and the people he's met because of his photography. Though the book is far from epic, it is still an inspiration to read.
