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 photoscontrasting moments of quintessential stillness with bursts of dramatic actionby 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 animalsand a heartfelt elegy to a vanishing world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A poetic wildlife In this fantastic book, Nick Brandt show us a side of wildlife we rarely have a chance to see. His pictures, all in monochrome tones, are very poetic. Instead of catching the animal's everyday life, he shows us wonderful portraits that feel really intimate, even though they are animals. The book is large, allowing us to observe every detail and to feel the moment.
