Overview

In A Shadow Falls, which features fifty-eight recent images in stunning, oversized tritone plates, Nick Brandt continues his ambitious and ongoing photographic project to memorialize the vanishing natural grandeur of East Africa. Brandt’s wide-screen panoramas of animals and landscapes capture an epic vision of Africa that has not been seen before. His iconic portraits of its majestic animals are filled with an empathy usually reserved for human subjects.
 
From the opening images in A Shadow Falls, of a verdant world filled with multitudes of animals, to the closing images of small bands of creatures moving across a parched, dusty earth, Brandt portrays a mythic Africa struggling against tragic forces. In years to come, we will look back at these powerful photographs and wonder why humanity did not do more to preserve this rare corner of earthly paradise.

This gorgeous book by Nick Brandt is wonderful. I purchased the copy for my mother who is also on her way to becoming a more professional photographer. I stood at the table in B&N looking through this breathtaking collection of art. Each photo brought out emotions in me. I even gasped at many of them. I fell in love with his images and was excited that I received a copy of it myself for Christmas. In addition to being a beautiful coffee table book for anyone who loves photographs or animals, it is also a great resource for viewing intricate photography techniques. Brandt has an amazing eye and wonderful style and I often mention this book when discussing photography. Highly recommended.
