Photography

Photography has that special ability to capture the moment. At Tales you can find photo books, which did that to perfection, whether the camera was pointing towards fashion, design, humans, animals, nature or your favorite city. Photography can also be art in itself, when pushing the boundaries of the medium, experimenting with light, colours and perspective showing new sides of the world and of life itself. If you are a photographer yourself or just a photo enthusiast, get ready to be inspired by some of the greatest photo artists. There is a whole new world of photography waiting just for you, and we all know that a photo says more than a thousand words.

Photography
The best thing about photography is its ability to capture the moment - and its ability to do it in so many ways. Each individual takes their own kind of photos. We have our own characteristic which comes to the surface when photographing. Although another amazing thing about photography is its universality. You don’t have to speak the same language in order to understand a photo taken by another nationality, even though you should remember the cultural differences.  
When taking a photo we give something of ourselves. A photo shows how we as individuals see the world; the way we use colors, light and shadow, perspective and not least the motive we choose to capture. It shows our interpretation of the world, and it is a product of what we find meaningful, although it can be difficult to go from idea to reality as an amateur photographer taking a photo. The photography does not always end up as we planned. It can be challenging when the importance of well taken and well produced photography and visual media has increased in recent years, especially after the rise of photo sharing social media sites such as Instagram and Pinterest. In Tales’ selection of photography books online you can find help to get started yourself. The selection of photo books guide you to all the basics of lights, backgrounds, perspectives and lenses making you the next master of photography. Who knows maybe you will end up with your own photography book or more followers on social media? If not, you can get inspired by the works of some of the greatest photographers now and then giving their different interpretations of the world and of life itself. 

Popular photo books
In Tales’ selection of photo books online you will find some of the most popular photography books at the market. The books contain works of some of the biggest photo artists in modern history. Photography can be its own form of art, especially when the camera is in the hands of a talented photographer, and that is why some of our most popular books are photography art books.
One of the most popular photo books right now is the collection of Helmuth Newton’s photo art in the special anniversary edition of his famous art book SUMO. Helmuth Newton has a whole museum dedicated to him and his works in the German capital Berlin. Newton is one of the biggest names in modern photography art and you have the chance of getting lost in 464 of his greatest photos. Newton works in the cross field between art and fashion and some of his photos are quite provocative. We recommend you to dive into the works of Helmuth Newton together with other photography art books.
Another one among our most popular photo books is the bestselling Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton. Through amazing visual portraits Stanton tells the story of everyday life in New York seen through the eyes of the ordinary new yorker, while at the same time showing all the diversity of the Big Apple. Stantons’ photos focus on the individual and the story of that individual, which comes to life in his photo book. All the individual photos come together and form a poetic and authentic portrait of modern New York.

Coffee table books
We all know the feeling of getting lost for words, especially in situations when not convenient. With one or two photography books on your coffee table you never have to experience that again. With a photo book you always have something to show your guests. A photo book gives them something to look at and converse about. There is nothing so inspiring as a good photo book. Coffee table books also add that final touch to your interior and show your interest in photography and art, making even more room for conversation. The photography books look good both in and out, and make your furnishing even more stylish, while giving you a touch of inspiration every day.
