Rate this:
This is a collection of the most beautiful and memorable pictures taken over the 50-year history of what is now the world's most prestigious wildlife photography competition. The pictures also tell the story of how the competition has marked the development of nature photography over the past half century, how it has influenced it, and how the very best images should be valued as art of a high order. The photographs are grouped around subjects related to the competition and photography in general, from the pioneers of wildlife photography, to the use of low light, aerial shots, close-up imagery, underwater photography and more. The pictures are organised chronologically within these groups and each picture caption puts the photograph in context, bringing out its importance, as well as telling the relevant story. Nature and animal lovers will marvel at this astounding volume.
