about

Ever since he was a teenager growing up in Houston, Texas, Carlyle Thompson wanted to visit Africa. In 2006, he got his chance. Thompson shares his incredible journey to one of the world's most mysterious countries in Africa: A Photographic Safari.

Instead of traveling to Africa as a tourist, Thompson chose to go as a photographer. He explores the red soil of Africa for five days in the bush, and through the lens of his camera he is exposed to a completely different aspect of visiting a foreign country. From wildlife safaris to coming face-to-face with the Laikipia Masai and Samburu people, Thompson experiences Africa at its most intimate.

Thompson's stunning pictures and vivid descriptions create a sobering portrait of Africa's poverty. In a place so rich in mystical beauty, minerals, and wildlife, Africa's poor present a marked contrast to their environment. Yet Thompson shows the warmth and strength of these people who love life despite having to do without.

A truly remarkable work, Africa: A Photographic Safari takes you into the very heart of Africa and reveals the triumphant nature of the human spirit.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terribly written This book reads like a grade school book report. Very poorly written. Sparse on photos too (at least on the Kobo). I was very disappointed, it isn't worth the money.
