I purchased this book for my daughter as part of her Christmas present, it was part of her wish list. Having been to Africa on a number of ocassions, seeing about 10 countries there, she knew she would love this book and she was right. She thought it was amazing. It is so big and heavy and the photographs are unbelievable, so beautiful and true to Africa, so she tells me. I have never had the priviledge of visitng any part of Africa. I know I can speak on my daughters behalf and say she would thoroughly recommend this book.
Steve does for Africa what mccurry does for Asia. Very impressive book, Steve has a fantastic eye and has the ability to bring Africa into your living room. I should know, having both been to Africa and working as a pro photographer. He guides the eye through patterns, abstracts, motion blur, people, city life, tribesmen, rituals, the African way of life and wildlife photos. I have many photography books but this is one of the most highly treasured. Absolute gem of a book!
