Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Sudan for most people is just a name in the news. This magnificent book corrects that; its wise and well-informed text and lavish pictures give the country a face--irresistable, photogenic, bewitching, and profoundly human, in all its fabulous Sudanese variety." -- Paul Theroux

Michael Freeman's new book 'Get the Photos Others Can't' is now available to order.

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and author, with 147 book titles to his credit, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. He made the break from there in 1971 to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures extensively in the Amazon volume of their World's Wild Places series, including the cover, they encouraged him to begin a full-time photographic career.

Since then, working for editorial clients that include all the world's major magazines, and notably the Smithsonian Magazine (with which he has had a 30-year association, shooting more than 40 stories), Freeman's reputation has been consolidated as one of the leading reportage photographers. Of his many books, which have sold 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography - for this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture, and he is the world's leading author on photographic practice. Having been for many years responsible for the distance-learning courses on photography at the UK's Open College of the Arts, Freeman now runs a monthly online Photography Foundation Course at

Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages, and are available on all other Amazon international sites.
