Even though you may not recognize his name, I’m sure a lot of you seen some of Nick Brandt’s most iconic photos from his book, ‘On This Earth, A Shadow Falls’, before. This is actually two books that’s been put together into a single, gorgeous fine art book, worthy of being displayed on any coffee table.
I got this for my birthday a little while back and I just wanted to share a recommendation; if you enjoy looking at photos that’s a bit out of the ordinary, this is the book for you. It’s a big book, and it really needs to be in order to give these photos the space they deserve. There’s also very little text, just a few forewords and then it’s all about the photos the rest of the way.
I won’t say all that much more about it, the images speak for themselves. Here are a couple of more spreads to look at, so you get a sense for the space that these images get to shine in.
It’s an expensive book though, so I recommend that you go to Nick Brandt’s website and have a look at all the pictures for yourself first. However, just remember that the small versions there doesn’t come close to the beautiful prints in this book. They will however give you a good sense for the content of the book.
That’s all for today, until next time.
