About the Author

Professional photographer and bestselling author Michael Freeman was born in England in 1945. After earning his Master's degree in Geography from Brasenose College at Oxford University, he spent 6 years working in the advertising industry in London. In 1971, Freeman embarked on an adventure up the Amazon with 2 secondhand cameras. After Time-Life decided to use many of the pictures he captured while on that trip, he changed career paths and started working as a full-time photographer. Since that time, Freeman has completed work for many high-profile clients, including nearly all of the world's major magazines--most notably Smithsonian, for which he has shot more than 40 stories in 30 years. He has made a name for himself as one of the world's leading reportage photographers. His many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide in 27 languages, include 60 volumes on photography. In recognition of this work, Freeman was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture.
