The Bigger Picture: 30 Years of Portraits

Производитель: "National Geographic Society"

`The Bigger Picture`is a book of portraits - but not just any portraits! These are pictures of people who have achieved greatness in every walk of life - politics, entertainment, art, music, science, and literature - from heads of state to Hollywood celebrities to giants of industry. But there are also people who would otherwise remain anonymous and their stories untold - coworkers, homeless people, and disaster victims. Diana Walker, a longtime photographer for`TIME`magazine, has gone behind the scenes and photographed her subjects repeatedly over time. Walker`s way of engaging her subjects and inspiring trust results in that feels spontaneous and open, leaving viewers feeling that they`ve met Diana`s subjects personally. Words by those in the pictures offer reminiscences about the experience of being photographed and tell of events surrounding the pictures. The book is organised into groupings of photographs, with the overall arrangement being both chronological and thematic. Walker writes about photographing her subjects in short texts throughout the book. The result is a layered story - the story of each subject from the point of view of the photographer, the viewer, and the subject him or herself.
