Publisher Comments:

Nick Brandt depicts the animals of East Africa with an intimacy and artistry unmatched by other photographers who choose wildlife as their subject. He creates these majestic sepia and blue-tone photos contrasting moments of quintessential stillness with bursts of dramatic action by engaging with these creatures on an exceptionally intimate level, without the customary use of a telephoto lens. Evocative of classical art, from dignified portraits to sweeping natural tableaux, Brandt's images artfully and simply capture animals in their natural states of being. With a foreword by Alice Sebold and an introduction by Jane Goodall, "On This Earth" is a gorgeous portfolio of some of the last wild animals and a heartfelt elegy to a vanishing world.

I found this book for $6 in a no return bin at Walden books. I got on the internet to see if I could find another and discovered my wonderful bargain. The photographs are beautiful. Beautiful, does not fully describe the wondrous emotion the photos evoke. Hopefully this will be the begining of more books for Nick Brandt.
