If you have an ipad, then you may have already discovered the abundance of great books available via the book store app. You may also have worked out that there are quite a few books that can be downloaded for free.
Well, here’s my recommendation for one such free book download: Getty Images’ “Year in Focus 2011”.
Amazing images from the Getty collection encompassing everything from frontline “Arab Spring” conflict scenes to 2011’s bestest celebrity, fashion and sport images. There are even sections dedicated to obituaries (classic images of those we lost in 2011) and anniversaries of key historical events. Stills are combined with film clips to provide a comprehensive visual summary of the year.
All in all, a wonderful collection of photographs which can be viewed with the benefit of electronic illumination, which really brings the images to life in a way that a traditional book would be hard-pressed to do, and all at my favourite price – FREE.
