Twenty years of remarkable Getaway photography has culminated in the vivid photographic passport to Africa that is Africa Lens.
Over the past two decades Getaway has excited the armchair traveller andinspired the adventurous to explore thecontinent. More than any other publication,it has captured the spirit of Africantravel and adventure, reaching millions of readers. The magazine has portrayed the continent’s people, fauna and landscapes in many indelible ways over the past 20 years.
As with good travel writing, a successful photographic assignment is one in which the journalist has captured the genius loci – the spirit of the place. It’s often an indescribable and elusive element: a mood, a familiar scene rendered somehow unfamiliar, perhaps a fleeting moment where light and subject conspire in the viewfinder to give you something … more.
The pictures reproduced in this book are just such moments.
