9780792238812: The Last Place on Earth: With Mike Fay's African Megatransect Journals (v. 1&2)

The photographs in The Last Place on Earth are the best wildlife images in the world today. The groundbreaking photography in Volume I presents wildlife as if the viewer is on the scene and closeup. This is accomplished with gadgetry developed at National Geographic under the guidance of Michael Nichols. The new technology allows Nichols to set aside the usual telephoto lenses that magnify and flatten subjects, freeing him to use more normal lenses with special lighting. The resulting pictures come the closest to bridging the gap between wildlife and humanity than any photographs have ever done. Pictures cover the rough and amazing beauty of central Africa's wildlife and terrain-many images have never been seen-for example, surfing hippos and sun-bathing buffalo. Volume II highlights a facsimile of Mike Fay's original journal. It is real-life drama at its very best. Nichols' stunning black and white images of the arduous journey illustrate Fay's detailed entries. Together the set constructs a portrait of central African forests before their greatness succumbs to the inexorable nibble of humanity. Threats by armed-poachers, disease, and despair are offset by moments of utter astonishment: Fay befriends a gorilla, Ebobo, whom he first met seven years before. At one point along the trip the gorilla was seen waiting for Fay to catch up. As a result of Nichols' and Fay's work, the government of Gabon created 13 national parks protecting 11,294 square miles.

Descrizione libro National Geographic, U.S.A., 2005. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. Nichols, Michael (illustratore). 1st Edition. WOW! That's the best way to describe this brand new GORGEOUS lavishly illustrated oversized photography book set of cloth hardcovers in heavy duty board presentation box. This is probably the most beautiful photography book I have ever seen. The book is over 11x15 inches and every photo is reproduced in full color on a full page by itself. Every single one of these hundreds of spectacular prints could be framed and proudly displayed on the wall, but hopefully you won't cut any out to do that since the book itself is a spectacular work of art that would be the pride of any collection and surely a future heirloom. With the main book also comes a smaller book that reproduces the writers journal and has hundreds more superb black and white photos by master photographer Michael Nichols. Both books come in a box designed to fit them perfectly. The main color photography book is in perfect crisp new tight untouched unread condition and is covered with a rich brown linen cloth on top of which a full size color photograph is added to the front cover. The smaller journal is clothbound with pictorial hardboard covers. It is bumped and slightly bent on the lower outside corner, but otherwise in pristine new unread condition. Both books feature Africa's last wild places. The photographs in The Last Place on Earth are considered the best wildlife images in the world today. Proceeds of the book originally went to fund wildlife conservation in Africa, and as a result of Nichols' and Fay's work, the government of Gabon created 13 national parks protecting 11,294 square miles. WOW!. Codice libro della libreria 046176

Descrizione libro National Geographic Books, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The photographs in The Last Place on Earth are the best wildlife images in the world today. The groundbreaking photography in Volume I presents wildlife as if the viewer is on the scene and closeup. This is accomplished with gadgetry developed at National Geographic under the guidance of Michael Nichols. The new technology allows Nichols to set aside the usual telephoto lenses that magnify and flatten subjects, freeing him to use more normal lenses with special lighting. The resulting pictures come the closest to bridging the gap between wildlife and humanity than any photographs have ever done. Pictures cover the rough and amazing beauty of central Africa s wildlife and terrain-many images have never been seen-for example, surfing hippos and sun-bathing buffalo. Volume II highlights a facsimile of Mike Fay s original journal. It is real-life drama at its very best. Nichols stunning black and white images of the arduous journey illustrate Fay s detailed entries. Together the set constructs a portrait of central African forests before their greatness succumbs to the inexorable nibble of humanity. Threats by armed-poachers, disease, and despair are offset by moments of utter astonishment: Fay befriends a gorilla, Ebobo, whom he first met seven years before. At one point along the trip the gorilla was seen waiting for Fay to catch up. As a result of Nichols and Fay s work, the government of Gabon created 13 national parks protecting 11,294 square miles.
