Overview

This gorgeous gift book reveals nearly 50 years of photography by seasoned National Geographic photographer Bill Allard. Allard was a pioneer of color photography with a style that called for entering people's homes and hearts; by winning their confidence he was able to capture "off guard" moments, and reveal the depth of human nature as never before seen in the pages of National Geographic. Always in search of "what is happening at the edges," his work reveals beauty, mystery, and a sense of adventure. Part photography retrospective and part personal memoir, this book paints a full picture —through images and narrative —of the life of a globe-trekking photographer over the past half century.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Ranging from cowboys to fashion models, and from street scenes in Paris to everyday life in highland Peru, these images show one of the modern photography's masters at the peak of his form.” –Book News
 
“The breadth of [Allard’s] work is apparent in the sumptuous ‘Five Decades: A Retrospective’…Although his landscapes and street scenes are gorgeous, the portraits are what stay with you…Allard is a sculptor on film, chiseling faces and figures into monumentality.”
–Wall Street Journal online
