This is a vision of Africa quite unlike any that have come before: photographs of wildlife as Fine Art. Nick Brandt depicts the animals of East Africa with an intimacy and artistry unmatched by other photographers who choose wildlife as their subject. The pictures in On This Earth portray a world of drama and poignancy, where the very souls of the animals seem to be revealed to us. Brandt creates these majestic photos - whether of moments of quintessential stillness or bursts of dramatic action - by engaging with these animals 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 artfully and simply captures animals in their natural state of being. With a foreword by acclaimed novelist Alice Sebold and an introduction by Jane Goodall, On This Earth is a gorgeous portrait of some of the last wild animals - and a heartfelt elegy to a vanishing world.
