Library Journal Review

For this lovely and dramatic book, National Geographic (NG) photographer Griffiths (A Camera, Two Kids, and a Camel: My Journey in Photographs; National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs) has chosen hundreds of the most remarkable images ever made by NG photographers. Herself an accomplished photographer whose work has appeared in Life, Smithsonian, GEO, Paris Match, and other publications, Griffiths contributes a thoughtful introduction and has organized the book into six broad categories: "Mystery"; "Harmony"; "Wit"; "Discovery"; "Energy"; and "Intimacy." She has succeeded admirably in selecting such fine photographs and arranging them, along with insightful quotes, in an appealing manner. Beautifully designed and reasonably priced, Stunning Photographs offers a sampler of incredible images in a single, large-format monograph. Verdict Anyone interested in photography, from amateur to seasoned professional, will absolutely love this book.-Raymond Bial, First Light Photography, Urbana, IL (c) Copyright 2015.
