From one of the world's leading photographers, this is a beautifully illustrated coffee-table book of the beginning of life. Award-winning photographer Anne Geddes founded a new tradition in visual storytelling and captivated an international audience. Now, after spending 12 months photographing, Anne reveals a range of images that are, in her own words, among the most personally rewarding she has ever created. 'I have always been fascinated by elements of nature at the moment of transformation', comments Anne. 'Babies are the human face of beginnings, but all of nature is caught in this insistent stream of seasons, of aging and rebirth, of concealment and bursting forth. Every time I unwrap a newborn, even after all these years of photographing them, I am aware of the miracle before me. This book, "Beginnings", took me on a journey of discovery to reveal these everyday miracles of nature, these complementary wonders, in imagery'. Continuing in the tradition that has made her one of the most sought-after and popular photographers in the world, in "Beginnings", Anne Geddes presents the simple and elegant elements of nature as we have never seen them before. With her camera, she has conceived a fresh story about the delicate and powerful mystery of new life that will inspire nature lovers just as surely as her images of babies have captured the imaginations of people around the globe. She reveals the intricate beauty of birds' nests, the delicacy of eggs, and the glorious color hidden inside the tight, unopened petals of a blossom before it blooms. Then, she expands on her visual metaphor to reveal surprising and illuminating juxtapositions of beginnings in floral and human forms. Told in a language of love that is understood by so many cultures and people of all ages, "Beginnings" is sure to transcend boundaries, as her other internationally bestselling books have done.
