Photographic Visions: Inspiring Images and How They Were Made is a treasure trove of world-class photography that will motivate and entertain photographers of all levels. This is the second volume of the highly successful 1x.com series.
To create this volume, the curators of the online gallery 1x.com selected 95 stunning images from the thousands of amazing images found on their website. The images in the book are by previously unknown photographers from across the globe. The photographic genres in this book are varied, and there is something for every type of photographic interest, from portraits to landscapes to abstracts. Each image is accompanied by information about the photographer, the vision and story behind the image, and details about the techniques and tools used to capture and process the image. With this book, 1x.com delivers a marvelous body of work that is beautiful enough for the coffee table and informative enough for use as a photographic guidebook.
About the authors:
1x.com is an online photo gallery and social network. Every photo displayed on the site has been hand picked by a professional curator, which has resulted in a gallery of world-class photography. Many of the exceptional photos published on 1x can be bought as premium fine art prints.
