On This Earth: Photographs from East Africa
Nick BrandtISBN: 0811848655; 978-0-8118-4865-7;
Nick Brandt depicts the animals of East Africa with an intimacy and artistry unmatched by other photographers who choose wildlife as their subject. He creates these majestic sepia and blue-tone photos?contrasting moments of quintessential stillness with bursts of dramatic action?by engaging with these creatures on an exceptionally intimate level, without the customary use of a telephoto lens. Evocative of classical art, from dignified portraits to sweeping natural tableaux, Brandt's images artfully and simply capture animals in their natural states of being. With a foreword by Alice Sebold and an introduction by Jane Goodall, On This Earth is a gorgeous portfolio of some of the last wild animals?and a heartfelt elegy to a vanishing world.
