Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This stunning collection of photographs covers five ecosystems — savannah, woodland, rainforest, wetland, and desert — and depicts habitat, animals, and human inhabitants for each. The photographs represent 20 trips to Africa over a span of 20 years, including a March 2001 photo safari to Tanzania. Michele Gilder's five essays accompany Art Wolfe's exquisite photographs and address the pressing need to protect the diversity within each ecosystem.

Review:

"It is difficult to find enough superlatives to describe photographer Wolfe. Winner of numerous awards honoring both his photographs and his commitment to conservation, he is one of the most published nature photographers today. Africa presents a selection from 20 years of his career, and it easily makes a place for itself in the crowded field of books about the second largest continent." Booklist
