A Singular View of the World Dec 3, 2004
Creative people live for those rare moments, often called the `flow state', where time dissolves and a feeling of being totally absorbed in what you are doing takes over. That's what I feel when I spend time with this wonderful book by photographer Eric Meola.
In travels from Asia to Africa to India, Meola shows us images at times lyrical, at times startling, and always perceptive and respectful of his subjects. The sequencing of images throughout the book provide fascinating juxtapositions that add greatly to the overall experience of enjoying this book. In many cases, one almost feels that Meola was invisible while photographing people in many of the remote locations he traveled to.
Viewing Last Places on Earth provides a window on the incredible richness and diversity in our world. It's hard to think of a photographer who has a greater devotion to the medium and mastery of the process than Eric Meola, and it certainly shows in this exceptional book.
STUNNING!!! Nov 9, 2004
I had the fortune of assisting Eric in the early 90's on at least six commercial shoots. Although he's been very well known in that world of imaging, IMHO, this is where his true passion is. His first book is FILLED with amazing travel images from front to back. I cannot say enough good things about the images and presentation. First class as expected from my mentor!
