a250t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Two small, photography hardcovers. 1) Portraits by Steve McCurry, Phaidon publ. McCurry never set out to take portraits. In 1985, he photographed an Afghan girl (cover) for the National Geographic. The intensity of the subject's eyes and her compelling gaze made this one of the most widely and consistently celebrated portraits in the history of contemporary photography. This accompanies the other remarkable faces he has encountered whilst travelling throughout the world, collected together in an engaging and strangely moving series of unique street portraits: unposed, unstylized images of people that reveal the true universality of the depths of human emotion. 2) National Geographic, The Photographs by Leah Bendavid-Val, c. 2008. 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.
