The Photographic Life.
Photographs by Sam Abell. Text by Leah Bendavid-Val
260 pp., 200 black-and-white and color illustrations, 11½x10¼".
For 30 years Sam Abell has been a cornerstone of the National Geographic photography team, but his image-making odyssey began when he was just ten years old. This much-anticipated new book illustrates how rich his photographic life has been and how integral photography is to how he exists in the world. Organized into several distinct sections, the book opens with a superb essay by photo-historian Leah Bendavid-Val, followed by selections from Abell's black-and-white photo diary (an on-going parallel activity to his Geographic assignments). Chapters entitled Seeking the Picture, The Photography of Places, and The Life Behind Things follow. Part autobiography, part retrospective, The Photographic Life is well-conceived and exemplary in content and form.
