'John Blewitt has written a compelling and perceptive book which anyone interested in understanding the relationship between media and the natural world will find fascinating.' --Chris Palmer, film producer and author of Shooting in the Wild: An Insider's Account of Making Movies in the Animal Kingdom.
'Everybody interested in the natural world and the power of visual imagery will find this book a thoroughly informative overview of the way today's image-makers reflect nature and affect our attitudes towards it. It covers a range of media - from movies and TV films to still photography - and contains the thought-provoking views of influential commentators working in this fascinating field.' --Rosamund Kidman Cox, former editor, BBC Wildlife Magazine.
