Overview

Featuring a bevy of captivating images, this unique volume explores both the art of photography and the beauty of the natural landscape. Themed sections explore the concepts of wilderness, camera placement, and dark light and are accompanied by galleries that showcase stunning photographs of animals such as snow geese and wildebeest as they interact with their environments. Essays at the start of each chapter that discuss both inspiration in photography and shed light on the environment complete this thought-provoking volume.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Wildlife photographer Rouse is a prominent presence on television and in print (including National Geographic) whose previous books include the stunning Concepts of Nature. Through years of field expeditions, Rouse has become a naturalist as well as an artist; having grown less interested in wildlife portraits, Rouse now focuses on the everyday activity of wildlife. From a polar bear roaring into a storm to the astounding Picasso-like formations of starling flocks, this volumecaptures the ecological landscape of which animals are just a part: a distance shot of a Bengal tiger reclining in a temple ruin overrun by jungle captures the jungle cat in intimate relation to its place and time. Some images feature a sharply-focused animal against a time-lapsed background: a crouching lioness amidst blowing tree branches, a Sally Lightfoot crab enveloped in surf, the cascading motion of birds in flight. Rouse's captions illuminate not just his photographic technique, but his ecological concerns; he also provides sound photographic advice throughout. Non-photographers will enjoy the artwork, and nature-lovers should be riveted.
