Each artist featured in the book has been a winner in the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition - an international showcase for the very best photography featuring natural subjects. One hundred of the most innovative and imaginative images are chosen annually by a panel of expert judges. These images form an exhibition at the Natural History Museum, London, that tours worldwide throughout the year. The competition is owned by two UK institutions that pride themselves on revealing and championing the diversity of life on Earth: the Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide.Review:
Hearing the call of the wild and capturing it on camera are two very different things, as the 10 photographers featured in the new book The Masters of Nature Photography can attest. They sometimes spent months tracking their subjects or stood waist-deep in lakes for hours. Still, nature photography is an underappreciated art, says the book's editor, Rosamund Kidman Cox. Because wildlife photography has historically been used mainly to record animals rather than to create art, the job was left to scientists who weren't trying to take something beautiful, says Ms. Cox. But recent improvements in photography, such as larger lenses and digital features, have allowed photographers to get more up-close and artistic.--Alexandra Wolfe"Wall Street Journal.com" (09/27/2013)
