Now a #1 New York Times Bestseller! In the summer of 2010, photographer Brandon Stanton began an ambitious project -to single-handedly create a photographic census of New York City. The photos he took and the accompanying interviews became the blog Humans of New York. His audience steadily grew from a few hundred followers to, at present count, over eighteen million. In 2013, his book Humans of New York, based on that blog, was published and immediately catapulted to the top of the NY Times Bestseller List where it has appeared for over forty-five weeks. Now, Brandon is back with the Humans of New York book that his loyal followers have been waiting for: Humans of New York: Stories. Ever since Brandon began interviewing people on the streets of New York, the dialogue he's had with them has increasingly become as in-depth, intriguing and moving as the photos themselves. Humans of New York: Stories presents a whole new group of people in stunning photographs, with a rich design and, most importantly, longer stories that delve deeper and surprise with greater candor. Let Brandon Stanton and the Humans of New York he's photographed astonish you all over again.

The perfect gift book from Paris’s iconic apothecary L’Officine Universelle Buly captures the elegance and sophistication of the Parisian beauty standard in a beautifully illustrated and detailed guide—with easy-to-follow recipes—to retaining and enhancing natural beauty. “Nothing is simpler, more enjoyable, more self-evident, or more efficient than taking good, natural care of yourself.” This is the philosophy of L’Officine Universelle Buly, a reincarnation of the legendary Parisian beauty emporium established in 1803. Since then, it has brought natural skin and body care to seven cities across the world, offering clays, oils, plant-based powders, and other gifts from nature collected by Victoire de Taillac and Ramdane Touhami over the course of their international travels. An Atlas of Natural Beauty is the result of their research and passion: an encyclopedic guide to simple recipes and protocols that will help anyone retain and enhance their natural beauty. This exquisitely designed book allows you to sample Buly’s unique aesthetic heritage as a French apothecary, as well as discover the modern uses, properties, and home beauty recipes for more than eighty exotic and diverse range of seeds, flowers, oils, trees, fruits, and herbs. From apricot and avocado to argan oil, jasmine, and jojoba, each ingredient is accompanied by a gorgeous illustration, its providence, its primary use, and recipes for how to use it as a beauty solution now. These ingredients are easy to find, and the recipes are easy to replicate, whether it’s making a simple oat bath to smooth skin, a sake lotion for your scalp, or a lemon “shine water” to brighten blonde hair. An Atlas of Natural Beauty is the perfect gift for newcomers and obsessives alike, empowering us all to take care of ourselves and feel confident in our skin.

Girls being fearless. Girls being silly. Girls being wild, stubborn, and proud. Girls whose faces are smeared with dirt and lit up with joy. So simple and yet so powerful, Strong Is the New Pretty celebrates, through more than 175 memorable photographs, the strength and spirit of girls being 100% themselves. Real beauty isn’t about being a certain size, acting a certain way, wearing the right clothes, or having your hair done (or even brushed). Real beauty is about being your authentic self and owning it. Kate T. Parker is a professional photographer who finds the real beauty in girls, capturing it for all the world to see in candid and arresting images. A celebration, a catalog of spirit in words and smiles, an affirmation of the fact that it’s what’s inside you that counts, Strong Is the New Pretty conveys a powerful message for every girl, for every mother and father of a girl, for every coach and mentor and teacher, for everyone in the village that it takes to raise a strong and self-confident person.

Peaks of Europe

A Photographer's Journey

Publisher: Lannoo Publishers

ISBN: 9782390250449


Page: 256

Peaks of Europe' is not a traditional landscape photography book. It's the result of a 5-month adventure across 17 countries told through the lens of a European travel photographer who took 29 years to finally explore the continent on which in he was born. The book has been designed for a specific purpose: telling the story of a 5-month road trip and what it takes to be living out of a car for several months, with all the good and bad moments. For this project, Johan Lolos wasn't just documenting the landscapes. This book features a series of photos with a focus on the storytelling as much as the imagery. At the end, the people he met were what he remembered most.

Smiles From Around The World

The World is Beautiful and Connected

Author: Ingrid Marn

Publisher: Ecademy Press

ISBN: 178452204X

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 160

View: 8977

In Smiles from Around the World, Ingrid Mårn presents a narrative of travel, learning, personal growth, and the subtle impact of globalization on the life and mind of a young person who is European by heritage and global through experience. Ingrid accomplishes that which few are able to: the bonding of prose and photograph to communicate the combination of personal and collective experience. While this work contains personal reflection, deeply enmeshed is the impact that others have had on her life, and her personal and professional growth through her encounters with peoples of the world. One also finds a subtle expression of hope for her children as for children all over the world, that some day the similarities in their collective personalities, goals and ambitions, desires and travails, will help to make this a more peaceful, less violent world.
