National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary

Staff Review: "National Geographic Rarely Seen: Photographs of the Extraordinary" by Susan Tyler Hitchcock, Stephen Alvarez


This book is absolutely gorgeous! From the highest mountains to the deepest caves, National Geographic brings us images from some amazingly talented photographers. These aren’t just any photos, but images of places and events that many of us will never get the chance to see in our lifetime. Some are secluded or protected places, some are once in a lifetime events, and others are simply gone due to environmental damage, but all come with a story. This book will inspire you to look at the beauty of the world around you. It offers a nice break in your day to explore the rare and awesome wonders in our world from the comfort of your living room. As a person who loves photography and travel, this book is a feast for the senses and the imagination. I definitely added a few places to my travel bucket list! I hope that you’ll find some inspiration in these pages too.
