Michael Poliza has clearly lived a number of lives, and most people would love just one of his talents. I'd certainly kill for his photography skills!
This is a huge book (ie. not suitable for many bookshelves), but worth every penny. Each shot is spread across a double page in rich detail on the very highest quality paper.
Both wildlife and landscape are covered exceptionally, from ultra-close ups of the "big five" to sprawling desert or mountainous backdrops, including locations from across the continent - bringing home its extraordinary beauty.
I've dropped a single star because we get no shots of the African people themselves. A minor point, but a Marrakech market scene, a Mozambique fisherman, a Maasai dance, a Pygmy village and a Kalahari San hunt (to think of some uber-generic spectacles!!) would have added icing to a very fine cake!
