Ferdinand Protzman on 'National Geographic World Talk'
Patty Kim talks to the author about his new book, 'Love,' featuring photographs taken all over the world by leading contemporary artists.
The looks of love: you'll find them in a new book featuring 250 photographs by some of the greatest photographers of our time, all of them capturing this ineffable emotion in unique and unexpected ways. But how can a photographer capture the power of love in still images? Does Love sit still? Author Ferdinand Protzman has some answers.
The photographs in Love, were taken all over the world by leading contemporary artists, such as William Eggleston, Mary Ellen Mark, and Martin Parr; legendary photographers including Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andre Kertesz and Brassaï; as well as rising young talents like Guillaume Herbaut, Jane Evelyn Atwood, Simon Wheatley and Jeffrey Aaronson.
Protzman is an award-winning cultural critic, author and contributing editor for ARTnews magazine. He has written four books and contributed to others.
