Description

Eye to Eye is the classic personal portfolio by master photographer Frans Lanting, the award-winning photographer and naturalist who has set the standards for a whole generation of wildlife photographers. The book gathers more than 140 photographs, made over a period of 20 years and reveals Lanting's unique personal aesthetic and the startling new perspective it offers on our fellow species on earth.The book's exquisite images are accompanied by personal stories and observations from a lifetime of working with wild animals around the world. "Living with albatrosses on a small island in the Pacific Ocean, roaming with a troop of lemurs through a forest in Madagascar-those were times when I learned to see the world through other eyes," Lanting says. "But what my eyes seek in these encounters is not just the beauty traditionally revered by wildlife photographers," he writes. "The perfection I seek in my photographic compositions is a means to show the strength and dignity of animals in nature."
