Tony Rath’s ‘Images of Belize’; a breath-taking view of Belizean culture
Images of Belize, the latest effort from acclaimed nature photographer Tony Rath is nothing short of stunning.
The book, published by Cubola Productions, was released on December 1st and offers a look at Belize from a distinctly unique perspective, bringing all the country’s wonderfully colorful aspects to life.
This exquisite gift-book of 100 images exhibits masterful portraits of mountains, forests, rivers, sea, islands, wildlife, marine life, people and cultures, opening a window into the diversity that is Belize.
Each image is a stunning revelation of photographic artistry and a visual journey that unveils the special relationship between people and their environment. It is the perfect keepsake for Belizeans, visitors, and nature lovers everywhere.
The book is a combination of informational text about the scenes being displayed and immensely vivid images that put the viewer in a first-person vantage point.
The layout of the book is not boxed in as it is in other books. Like Belize, it is fluid; photographer and publisher poured that sentiment into the pages, which is why the decaying Maya temples of Caracol flow naturally to the iridescent underwater temples of the world’s second largest Barrier Reef.
Images of Belize can be a companion on the journey across Belize. It does not contain all that travelers will see when in Belize, but it offers a perspective into how easily Belize can be embraced. It shows that the country begins and ends with its people and the journey in itself is the destination.
