About the Book:

The best photographs of the first 21 years of the 21st century take center stage in this incredible volume of National Geographic’s world-famous imagery.

In just two short decades of the 21st century, National Geographic has ushered in a new era of visual storytelling excellence, including innovations in digital, drone, and smartphone photography, and reached out to a global audience through one of the world’s most popular Instagram accounts, @NatGeo. In these 21 years, photography has transformed from a rarefied discipline to a universal medium of communication, available in the palm of everyone with a mobile phone. Through it all, National Geographic has remained at the forefront, shining a light on the beauty, wonder, and heartbreak of the world.
A remarkable collection, The 21st Century culls more than 250 of the very best, most impactful National Geographic images across print, digital, and social media, celebrating:

Extraordinary wildlife
Unique cultures around the world
Beautiful landscapes
One-of-a-kind portrait photography
And behind-the-shot stories from celebrated National Geographic photographers like Joel Sartore, Nick Nichols, Jodi Cobb, Anand Varma, and Evgenia Arbugaeva.

Spanning the remarkable moments year-by-year from 2000 to 2021, The 21st Century is a beautiful, giftable, and important record of our rapidly changing world–a treasury you’ll want to keep on the coffee table and turn to again and again.

My Thoughts:

What is there to say about this glorious collection of photographs from National Geographic, all the best from the first 21 years of the 21st century! (Does anyone else still want to write the 20th century?! 😬)

Organized year by year beginning in 2000, this one includes landscapes, wildlife, culture, and behind the scenes stories. It’s such a treasure, and as always with Nat Geo books, it’s highly giftable.

Do you have any unforgettable images from National Geographic? One of my favorites is the beautiful young girl who was photographed and then Oprah helped the photographer find her as an adult and reunited them.

I received a gifted copy.
