A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

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.

From Booklist:

This is a stunning work. Wolfe, one of the world's preeminent wildlife photographers, has chosen a new approach in his forty-second book. Recognizing that we cannot save animals without saving the places they live, Wolfe has illustrated this concept by using wideangle lenses for the majority of the images to portray animals in their habitats. The pictures then become both portraits and landscapes in the same instance, drawing the viewer in with the immediacy of an individual creature and the grandeur of its habitat. This approach is best illustrated by the image on the book's cover, where an elephant seal gazes directly into one's eyes, surrounded by the rocky emptiness of South Georgia Island in the Antarctic. Complementing Wolfe's photographs are essays by William Conway, Richard Dawkins, Jane Goodall, John Sawhill, and George Schaller. This is a beautiful production, essays and photographs perfect counterparts, and highly recommended for all libraries with good collections in photography and natural history. Nancy Bent
