Getaway has released a 144 page coffee table book featuring some of the most beautiful images taken by its photographers over the past 20 years. For two decades Getaway has excited the armchair traveller and inspired the adventurous to explore the continent. More than any other publication, it has captured the spirit of African travel, reaching millions of readers.
The magazine has covered most of the great African subjects: the Serengeti migration, Mali’s mud cities, Namibia’s many moods, gorillas in the leafy mist, orthodox liturgies at Lalibela and Namaqualands spring blooms.
A successful photographic assignment is one in which the journalist has captured the genius loci – the spirit of the place. It’s often an indescribable and elusive element: a mood, a familiar scene rendered somehow unfamiliar, perhaps a fleeting moment where light and subject conspire in the viewfinder to give you something more.
