A sequel to The Seasons Observed, Evelyn Lauder's first book of photographs, this new book presents a dazzling new selection of full-color images made by the author during her travels throughout the world. From brilliant sunsets over the Pacific, to intimate close-ups of flowers, faces and abstract patterns formed by light on water or ice, Lauder demonstrates a remarkable ability to capture the beauty in the everyday world. The first book was arranged according to the seasons; this one will have a more straightforward design, organized by the photographer's approach to her subjects (sky, natural spectacles, close-ups of abstract patterns, landscapes). The implicit themes of Lauder's photographs - optimism and nature's capacity for healing and renewal - are also those of her intense dedication to breast cancer research, and all royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Evelyn Lauder is a senior corporate vice president of Estee Lauder Inc., a well-known philanthropist, and a founder of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Her photographs have been exhibited widely through the United States and are in the collections of such distinguished museums as the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum in New York. Amy Spindler is Fashion Editor of The New York Times.From Publishers Weekly:
Lauder has twin careers in beauty: as an executive at the Estée Lauder Companies she hawks cosmetics, but as a well-regarded photographer, she concentrates on the beauty of her physical surroundings. This volume, a follow-up to her successful The Seasons Observed, includes lively images of a Chilean sand dune, a field of French poppies and a sunset in Myanmar. While it's true that many of these pictures don't reflect the sophistication-either technological or visual-of a gifted photographer, they often display the grace and vision of an artistic spirit. Captured by Lauder, a pond in New York contains the changing depth of an expressionist painting, and the translucent leaves of a palm tree shimmer with light. At worst, the work is pretty but boring-like a slide show of someone else's vacation-but at its best, it is somehow calming and exhilarating at the same time. Royalties from sales will be donated to the Break Cancer Research Foundation; 50 full color photographs.
