Universally desired and uniquely experienced, love finds expression in every land and culture. This enchanting new book celebrates the depth and diversity of love--at many moments in history, and at every human age--in an exquisite collection of photographs from National Geographic's famous archives and beyond. Each picture tells a tantalizing story and captures an intimate, unforgettable glimpse of love's many facets, from courtship to friendship to charity and more.
As life-affirming and surprising as its namesake, the book is a beautiful keepsake for lovers and a must-have for all who admire classic photography. Masters of the art, such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, August Sander, Mary Ellen Mark, Eugene Richards, and William Allard, are among those who have traveled the globe to capture love's nuances. Showcasing evocative black-and-white portraits and gorgeous color images, "Love" follows in the tradition of bestselling photography titles including "Work, Through the Lens, In Focus, " and "Wide Angle."
More satisfying than candy and more affordable than a bouquet of flowers, Love is perfect for Valentine's Day, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays--and every occasion for gifts between those who love.
