Wild Life - Brad Wilson

05.2014

Most nature books capture animals in their native habitats. Brad Wilson decided to try a different approach - bringing animals into his studio and photographing each against a solid black background. The results are electrifying. By minimizing the distractions of background, Wilson allows us to focus solely on the animals. This book allows the reader to fully appreciate each animal's expression, posture, size and the remarkable textures and colours of fur, hides, or feathers. As he explains in the introduction, Wilson faced enormous challenges in undertaking this project.
