Overview

Living Wild by Art Wolfe

Art Wolfe has been photographing nature and wildlife to wide acclaim for 25 years, but his most recent book takes a new approach. Recognizing the crucial interdependence between animal life and the environment, Wolfe focuses on this relationship. As he says, "An animal . . . within its habitat is a vibrant representation of natural selection." The Living Wild offers breathtaking evidence of this. Wolfe traveled three years to capture these rare, soaring images, from Mongolia to Australia to Iceland and beyond. The result is a rich pictorial tour of a magnificent array of animals, from "charismatic" beasts like the giant panda and the lowland gorilla, to a stunning display of birds, to such unsung contributors to the ecology as insects. Complementing the images are essays by renowned conservationists, such as Jane Goodall, who document the increasingly tenuous state of earth's biodiversity and suggest ways to strengthen it.

This deserves six stars. A great book about wildlife and photography all over the globe. A big book with big photos of incredible shots. He also gives information about the animals profiled and the range of habitat, etc. A true coffee table book!! This is the book I have always dreamed of producing myself, but........ I don't take photos like these. I think that he now ranks up there with my favorite photographer/authors with: Galen Rowell, Ansel Adams, and John Fielder books. Wow!!
