Light on the Earth, Hardback


A stunning collection of nature photographs: the best from 20 years of the prestigious international Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, representing most of the world's top photographers.

This lavish, large-format book contains more than 170 photographs, covering all natural subjects, with an emphasis on beauty, colour and form, as well as unforgettable scenes of both animal behaviour and landscape, grouped in the following chapters: Illuminations, Portraits, Moments, Formations, Reflections and Connections.

Each picture is accompanied by a memorable and informative caption, and each chapter has an introduction by a famous photographer or personality, from Yann Arthus-Bertrand to Jim Brandenberg and Chris Packham.

An index of photographic details is also included.
