National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs by Annie Griffiths Belt is a stunning collection of breathtaking and awe-inspiring photographs from around the world. The world famous award winning photographers who roam the world armed with a camera to capture stunning moments, have given us a visual feast to the eyes. One such award-winning photographer Annie Griffiths has compiled some of her best images into a book, with the collection being classified by the colors, the composition, the light, the moment, motion, the palette and the wonder. These are the different aspects that can define a photograph, and the author has done justice to each of it by her excellent grouping of the photographs. The author has brilliantly highlighted the themes by quoting appropriate verses to illuminate the concept and the book is truly a labour of love. With this book, she has achieved both of her goals, i.e. to bring pure visual delight and to bring out a unique book, from which people can buy prints of the individual photographs. Annie Griffiths is a pioneer in photography, who was one of the few female photographers to be employed by National Geographic initially. She has traveled to more than a hundred countries in her quest of capturing the perfect moment and is also the founder of the Ripple Effect, which aims to monitor the coping mechanisms of poor women with adverse effects brought about by climate change. She has also written books like A Camera, Two Kids and a Camel: My Journey In Photographs, apart from having her photos published in the National geographic, the TIME magazine and Last Stand: America's Virgin Lands. .

National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs takes readers on a spectacular visual journey through some of the most stunning photographs to be found in National Geographic’s famed Image Collection. Award-winning photographer Annie Griffiths culled the images to reflect the many variations on the universal theme of beauty. Chapters are organized around the aesthetic concepts that create beauty in a photograph: Light, Composition, Moment (Gesture and Emotion), Motion, Palette, and Wonder.

Beyond the introduction and brief essays about each featured concept, the text is light. The photographs speak for themselves, enhanced by lyrical quotes from scholars and poets. In the chapter on Light, for example, we read these words of whimsical wisdom from songwriter Leonard Cohen: “Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That's how the lights get in.” And then the images flow, of light entering scenes through windows, clouds, and spotlights, from above, alongside, and behind, casting radiance upon young ballerinas and weathered men, into groves of autumn trees and island-dotted seas, revealing everything it touches to be beautiful beyond expectation.

To illuminate the theme of Wonder, Griffiths chose a wish from Andre Bazin: “If I had influence with the good fairy...I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.” This thought is juxtaposed with an exquisite vision in white, a frame filled with the snowy-pure dots and rays of a bird’s fan tail. And on it goes, picture after tantalizing picture, alive with wondrous beauty.

When she created National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs, Annie Griffiths set two goals: to maximize visual delight, and to create a book unique in the world of publishing—one in which many of the photographs could be purchased as prints. She has succeeded on both counts. Many of these stunning images are available for order, and there can be no doubt as to the visual delight. You must open this book for yourself, and take in its radiant beauty.
