By Annie Griffiths Belt
224 pages. National Geographic.
Equipped with film and pampers, National Geographic photographer Annie Griffiths Belt insisted on taking her two young children with her on assignment around the world, a "hectic and humbling" enterprise she describes, with warmth and wonder, in her dazzlingly intimate photo memoir, A Camera, Two Kids and a Camel (National Geographic). Recognizing a kindred spirit, people from wildly divergent cultures welcomed this tireless traveler into their lives. "They allowed me to be with them," she writes. "That is the constant miracle of my work."
