Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

By Joe Yogerst and Reuel Golden, Taschen, £50, 312 pages, hard­cover, ISBN 978-3836568764

If you’re a fan of travel pho­tog­ra­phy, it’s dif­fi­cult not to call to mind Na­tional Ge­o­graphic which, in­cred­i­bly, pub­lished its first is­sue in 1888. Jim Bran­den­burg, Steve McCurry and Joel Sar­tore are just some of the names that have graced the pages over the years. In this lav­ish vol­ume, we see how the con­ti­nent of Africa has been cap­tured by the mag­a­zine through­out the years. There are around 200 images and ev­ery one can eas­ily stand up on its own. Each page serves as a per­fect rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the con­ti­nent’s unique qual­i­ties and does much to jus­tify the much- de­served rep­u­ta­tion of Na­tional Ge­o­graphic. ★★★★ ★ Oliver Atwell
