A wanderlust-inspiring and transporting collection of photos from some of the world's most astounding places, organized thematically—vistas, sunrises and sunsets, city streets and urban life, tropical jungles, dramatic architectural facades, food stalls and restaurants, and more—from the premier online curator of travel photography.
As much an armchair travel companion as a guide to planning your next trip, My Tiny Atlas contains more than 200 lush, surprising, and stunning photos, along with stories about far-flung locales and tips for experiencing a new location like a local. From Tiny Atlas Quarterly—one of the most trusted sources for authentic, unusual, and inspiring travel photography—this book takes you to every continent and all corners of the world, from Paris, San Francisco, London, and Buenos Aires to the Arctic Circle, Tanzania, Tahiti, and Mongolia. My Tiny Atlas visually explores new destinations with an intimate, insider's view—not of the usual monuments and tourist attractions, but of the real people, mouth-watering food, verdant flora, bustling streets, wild animals, epic views, lazy rivers, architectural gems, and other details that make you feel what it's like to truly be in another place, whether or not you ever leave home.
About the Author
EMILY NATHAN founded Tiny Atlas Quarterly in 2012 to offer something that was missing from her work as a professional photographer shooting lifestyle and travel images for commercial clients: the photographer’s experience, the intimate moments, and the everyday extraordinary. The brand became known for merging incredible imagery from some of the best photographers in the world with the personal narratives and helpful travel resources that pros bring home from every shoot. Tiny Atlas Quarterly is based in Oakland, California, where Emily lives with her husband and son.
