Eye to Eye, the first personal portfolio by master photographer Frans Lanting, presents an extraordinary collection of animal images by an award-winning photographer and naturalist who "has set the standards for a whole generation of wildlife photographers," according to the BBC. More than 140 photographs, made over a period of twenty years, reveal the unique personal aesthetic Frans Lanting brings to wildlife photography, as well as the startling new perspective on animals his images provoke.
This book's exquisite images are accompanied by personal stories and observations from a lifetime of working with wild animals around the world, ranging form orangutans in the rain forests of Borneo to emperor penguins in Antarctica.
Frans Lanting's work has been lauded by designers as art, by biologists as science, and by others as a new vision about the relationship between animals and people---one that challenges us to look animals in the eye and see ourselves.

i thought that the work was just awe-inspiring. Frans lanting seems to have photographed just about every animal in our world, and as up close as his instinct would let him. There's barely any writing, which helps you appreciate the art more. i gave this a double thumbs-up!!!
I thought the creativity of the pictures is brilliant. The pictures reveal amazing color and wonderful close-ups which bring the animals to life. As a photography student the expertise of Frans Lanting is a skill I hope to achieve one day.
The photography in this book is spectacular! It is mostly photography and little words, a good choice for those who enjoy animals but have a hard time reading small print or reading at all.
