Masters of Landscape Photography

Over the Christmas break I bought a new book “Masters of Landscape Photography”. I would love to say I was featured, but alas I have been overlooked once more. Ordinarily I wouldn’t have bothered with a book such as this, but Amazon was offering a heavy discount. I took a chance and I think I have been well rewarded.

The book covers sixteen photographers, so you only see a small sample of work by each. The images that are presented though are very good. Someone has put a lot of effort into selecting a diverse range of interesting and beautiful work. Yes, there are a few of the usual names (at least for those of us in the UK) but there are others who are less well known.

One of the photographers you should probably look up if you don’t know him is Marc Adamus. Whilst I wasn’t familiar with his name, I have seen his work in galleries and his images are simply stunning. They may be a little too far from traditional landscapes for some readers, but you can’t deny they’re impressive.

I have added a short book review to Lenscraft covering this title. I’m quite impressed.
