Photographer’s library – Masters of Landscape Photography
First published 2017 by Ammonite Press
This book came to me as a very nice surprise. I get it for Christmas.
Nicely presented, this book brings together work of 16 of the world’s leading landscape photographers.
I can say, I was really impressed with the quality of the reproduced pictures completed with technical details and Q&A interviews with each artist. I already knew work of some of the photographers, but this book introduced me to a few new artists.
Each artist has his own chapter dependant on what his/her work is focused on.

So, are pictures in this book any good?
I can honestly say they are excellent and I found myself totally immersed browsing through the book. Also, I was really pleased to see work of Joe Cornish as I am a massive fan of his. There are many photographers I have not come across and I just loved photos by Lars Van De Goor. Truly fantastic collection of pictures full of the poetry of nature. Another new name to me was Sandra Bartocha. Very inspirational set of pictures well deserved to be included in this book.
To conclude this review I can recommend Masters of Landscape Photography book to every landscape photographer or landscape photography lover. This book is not just another collection of landscape photographs. It’s very interesting to read and understand the approach of masters of landscape photography. It will make a great gift.
