National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs takes readers on a spectacular visual journey through some of the most stunning photographs to be found in National Geographic’s famed Image Collection. Award-winning photographer Annie Griffiths culled the images to reflect the many variations on the universal theme of beauty. Chapters are organized around the aesthetic concepts that create beauty in a photograph: Light, Composition, Moment (Gesture and Emotion), Motion, Palette, and Wonder. Beyond the introduction and brief essays about each featured concept, the text is light. The photographs speak for themselves, enhanced by lyrical quotes from scholars and poets. In the chapter on Light, for example, we read these words of whimsical wisdom from songwriter Leonard Cohen: “Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That's how the lights get in.” And then the images flow, of light entering scenes through windows, clouds, and spotlights, from above, alongside, and behind, casting radiance upon young ballerinas and weathered men, into groves of autumn trees and island-dotted seas, revealing everything it touches to be beautiful beyond expectation. To illuminate the theme of Wonder, Griffiths chose a wish from Andre Bazin: “If I had influence with the good fairy...I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.” This thought is juxtaposed with an exquisite vision in white, a frame filled with the snowy-pure dots and rays of a bird’s fan tail. And on it goes, picture after tantalizing picture, alive with wondrous beauty. When she created National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs, Annie Griffiths set two goals: to maximize visual delight, and to create a book unique in the world of publishing—one in which many of the photographs could be purchased as prints. She has succeeded on both counts. Many of these stunning images are available for order, and there can be no doubt as to the visual delight. You must open this book for yourself, and take in its radiant beauty. From the Hardcover edition.

A fresh new approach to tapping into our own creativity, using the images and artifacts of our dreams. Getting inspired is one of the toughest parts of being an artist, whether we're a beginner or a seasoned professional. But as Tom Crockett shows us in this new book, finding ideas for our artwork is easier than we think. By simply exploring the images of our sleeping and waking dream states, we can discover a wealth of ideas and inspiration that are more authentic and powerful because they reveal our underlying spiritual self. Recognizing the importance of allowing our spiritual side to infuse our art and the fulfillment this can bring, Tom Crockett has created a program to teach us all, no matter what level of artistic experience we have, how to bring art and spirit into one. The four different types of creative expression Crockett has identified--Finding, Arranging, Altering, and Making--open up artistic options for everyone, even for those of us who cannot yet imagine that we have the ability to create art. Filled with personal anecdotes from the author's creativity workshops and practical, easy-to-implement advice for tapping into our hidden creativity, The Artist Inside teaches us: how to access the dreaming world to heighten creativity that we can create in each piece of artwork a temporary home for the spirit how creating a spiritual path can energize us and increase our intuitive capacity When the process of making art is guided by the inner vision of our sleeping and waking dream states, we connect with something larger than ourselves and rediscover that creativity can be both a spiritual path and an important life tool.
