This is the sequel to photographer Andrew Zuckerman's run-away success "Creature", a book full of astonishing studio portraits of animals.
In this new book, Zuckerman turns his camera lens upon winged creatures, shooting them against his trademark white background to allow the diversity and complexity of color and texture to shine.
Containing more than 200 photographs of nearly 75 different bird species from Swallows to endangered Penguins, each bird is depicted with rare sensitivity, insight, humour, and wonder.
Like "Creature", this book is perfect for animal lovers, orinthologists, photography fans, and anyone interested in the natural world. "Bird" is delightful and thought provoking, offering a glimpse of the most flighty members of the animal kingdom.
