An incredible variety of styles, skills and approaches are on show, reflecting the great advances in technology and the many and varied ways of viewing and interpreting the natural world. The prize-winning images include ground-breaking portraits, breathtaking aerial shots, underwater photography, close-up imagery and much more. The images are accompanied by captions that put the photographs in context, explaining their importance and revealing the vision, talent, passion and technique of the world's leading wildlife photographers. All those who are passionate about photography and who have viewed this compelling exhibition since its inception 50 years ago, will treasure this astounding volume.
