Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
David Gulden's 2006 photograph of a mother leopard taking a 'late-morning nap' in Kenya's Itong Hills is a revelation. She couldn't be more relaxed. She couldn't be more like your house cat settled on your favorite blanket on the couch. Mr. Gulden is an obsessive, willing to work for years to capture a shot of an animal in its habitat, unconcerned by human encroachment... For a shot of a crowned eagle and its young, the photographer tried dozens of mounds... The final shot of the mother, flying in with green leaves in her talons as her chick looks on, is an astonishing split-second drama."
--Wall Street Journal

"Gulden's black and white still portraits... are breathtaking... The Centre Cannot Hold is a superb photographic document of a disappearing world."
--Le Journal de la Photographie

Andrew Lasane
"The product of Gulden's efforts is a beautiful collection of true wildlife photography that provides the reader with a unique perspective of nature - one that is not preoccupied with manicured landscapes, generic compositions, or predictable framing. It's a must-have title for both animal and photography enthusiasts alike."
