Riassunto: A unique collection of essays accompany Wilfred Thesiger?s own personal photographs of the Africa he experienced as one of the world?s most celebrated explorers  

Along with Sir Wilfred Thesiger's beautiful photographs—most of them previously unpublished—the essays in this volume explore and evaluate his lifetime of African exploration and travel, as well as, for the first time, his photographic practice and its legacy as a museum collection. Wilfred Thesiger was, in the words of David Attenborough, "one of the very few people who in our time could be put on the pedestal of the great explorers of the 18th and 19th centuries." Throughout his life he journeyed through some of the remotest, most dangerous areas of Africa, witnessing and photographing fast-changing cultures to great acclaim. During the 1960s he traveled extensively in East Africa, and from 1978 he spent the greater part of each year living among the pastoral Samburu in Kenya, until retiring to England in 1994. His books, including Arabian Sands and The Marsh Arabs, have been hailed as classics of modern travel writing. Here in this collection, Thesiger is featured in conversation with David Attenborough, while other contributors include Benedict Allen, Jeremy Coote, Elizabeth Edwards, and Schuyler Jones. Published to coincide with the centenary of Wilfred Thesiger's birth in Ethiopia in 1910, this book is a moving celebration of Thesiger's enduring relationship to the continent, and his fascination with its peoples and landscapes.

L'autore: Alexander Maitland is the author of Wilfred Thesiger: A Life in Pictures.

Descrizione libro HarperCollins Publishers. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Wilfred Thesiger in Africa, Alexander Maitland, Chris Morton, Philip Grover, A unique collection of essays accompany Wilfred Thesiger's own personal photographs of the Africa he experienced as one of the world's most celebrated explorers. SIR WILFRED THESIGER, last of the great gentleman adventurers, was, in the words of David Attenborough, 'one of the very few people who in our time could be put on the pedestal of the great explorers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.' Born at the British Legation in 1910 in Addis Ababa, Thesiger spent his early years in Abyssinia. He was educated at Eton and Oxford and in 1930, aged twenty, attended the coronation of Haile Selassie at the Emperor's personal invitation. Throughout his life he journeyed through some of the remotest, most dangerous areas of Africa, the Middle East and Asia, witnessing and photographing fast-changing cultures to great acclaim. His many inspiring travels involved explorations in Ethiopia, wartime service with the SOE and the SAS, crossings of the Empty Quarter of Arabia, sojourns in the Iraqi marshes and many loyal and sometimes turbulent friendships. During the 1960s he travelled extensively in East Africa, and from 1978 he spent the greater part of each year living among the pastoral Samburu in Kenya, until retiring to England in 1994. He was knighted in 1995 and died in 2003, aged ninety-three. His books, including 'Arabian Sands' (1959) and 'The Marsh Arabs' (1964), have been hailed as classics of modern travel writing. Published to coincide with the centenary of Wilfred Thesiger's birth and a major exhibition at the Pitt Rivers Museum, this book is a moving celebration of Thesiger's enduring relationship with the African continent, and his fascination with its peoples and landscapes. Containing around two hundred photographs from Thesiger's personal archive, many of them previously unpublished, these essays explore and evaluate his lifetime of exploration and travel in Africa, as well as, for the first time, his photographic practice and its legacy as a museum collection.
