Discover Amsterdam's famous canals through the eyes of Ecuadorian photographer Cris Toala Olivares. He highlighted the characteristic spots of this city from different angles. The beautiful, historic houses, daily life and the many tourists are captured through the lens of this top photographer from the air, the ground and the water. The result is a fist-sized photo book of Amsterdam at its most beautiful.
The world-famous canals of Amsterdam have been praised from the moment they were built: the 17th century. At the time, Holland was world power No. 1, and Amsterdam's canals reflect the wealth and prosperity brought in by the Dutch merchant fleet at the time. The latter was done under the protection of a powerful navy, with admirals such as Tromp and de Ruyter.
Ecuadorian-born photographer Cris Toala Olivares, as mentioned, is not the first to heap praise on Amsterdam's canals. Nor, no doubt, will he be the last. But Olivares' book of photographs gives a perfect picture of the canals in the early 21st century. Indeed, gives you the feeling of being there yourself, indeed of living there yourself.
Olivares achieves this effect with high-quality photographs, equally high-quality spread throughout the 315 pages of this book. He almost achieves with it that you no longer have to travel to Amsterdam to see this beauty. Fortunately, reality is irreplaceable.
