For more than 100 years, National Geographic has set the standard for nature, culture, and wildlife photography. In "Through the Lens, " 250 spectacular images--some famous, others rarely seen--are gathered in one lavish, newly formatted volume. "Through the Lens" is divided into geographical regions with a special section devoted to space exploration. Each geographical section features an outstanding array of photographs that exemplifies the area's unique people, wildlife, archaeology, culture, architecture, and environment, accompanied by brief but informative captions. From Barry Bishop's heroic Mount Everest climb in the 1950s to the glorious wildlife of Asia and Africa, from ancient Maya culture to the Afghan woman found 17 years after her piercing green eyes captivated the world, these are some of the finest and most important photographs ever taken. Featuring master photographers from the late 1800s to today, including Frans Lanting, David Doubilet, David Alan Harvey, Jodi Cobb, William Albert Allard, Nick Nichols, and Annie Griffiths Belt, "Through the Lens" is an extraordinary photographic celebration of some of the greatest the world has to offer.
