Overview

• The first book of Michael Poliza's best baby animal photographs

• An ideal gift for all animal lovers, young or old

• Many photographs are published here for the first time

When I grow up, will I be the King of the Jungle…? Curious, playful, and clumsy: Michael Poliza’s irresistible photographs of baby animals are so adorable that it is hard to imagine these same creatures growing up into fierce hunters or nimble prey, battling it out for survival. This gift book is the first title of Poliza’s baby animal photographs, many of them published for the first time. From lion cubs in Botswana to baby chimpanzees and gorillas in Tanzania, penguin chicks on the Antarctic peninsula to polar bear cubs in Canada, Poliza travels the world in search of the most endearing wildlife babies. Whether in the African savannah or polar extremes, few photographers have come so close to their wildlife subjects. To achieve such proximity, Poliza shows masterful sensitivity and patience, not only towards the baby animals themselves, but also with their fiercely protective mothers. From a frolicking baby elephant to a sleeping little lion cub, Baby Animals brings page after page of heart-warming images and tiny triumphs in nature photography. Text in English, German and French.

About the Author

Life always shows Michael Poliza new paths: from actor to entrepreneur, from professional photographer to travel designer. After a career in the IT and Internet industries, Poliza started a three-year multimedia expedition on a ship around the world. In 2002, he settled in Cape Town, traveled the African plains and quickly became a world renowned wildlife and landscape photographer. The New York Times said of his work that “it could change the way you think about photography.” Captivated by the beauty of his work, friends of Poliza begin to ask if they can accompany him on his expeditions, and in 2011, he founded the company MICHAEL POLIZA PRIVATE TRAVEL, which tailors very special adventure trips to the most beautiful and untouched places.
