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.
