William Albert Allard has been a major force at National Geographic and in mainstream photography for almost 50 years. He has contributed to National Geographic Society publications and books since 1964 as a staff member, a freelancer, and contracted photographer and writer. In addition, he was a former contributor to Magnum Photos and has been published in most major magazines in the United States and abroad. In October 2010, National Geographic Magazine recognized Allard’s work on the American West with a 10-page excerpt from the new book. Allard is one of the few photographers of his generation whose entire professional body of work is in color. National Geographic photographers esteem Allard to be the pioneer and peerless exemplar of natural, expressive color in magazine photography.
