Spirit of the Wild
by Steve Bloom
Publisher's Description
Steve Bloom’s photographic explorations are imbued by a fierce urgency as the full force of man’s environmental destruction of the planet and its creatures is revealed.

His goal has been to search for the spirit of the world’s wildlife: the tiger’s eyes gleaming brightly in the jungles of India; polar bear cubs seeing the world for the first time; the few mountain gorillas left in Africa. The result is a perpetual dance for the eye, the embodiment of nature’s choreography, an intimate exploration which reveals not only the animals but much that is new to us about ourselves.

Accompanied by his own commentaries, as passionate as they are informed, and thought-provoking quotes from legendary figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Gerald Durrell and Emily Dickinson, Spirit of the Wild brings to the fore the common experiences of all living beings.

These unforgettable images will astonish and inform anyone who sees them.
