I first read about Untamed in an airline in-flight magazine, then saw an article about it in a photography magazine. These preview articles could not fully prepare me for the scale of the actual book and I was bowled over when it arrived. Primarily a beautiful photography book, it is huge, filled with the most awesome images. Bloom has captured something of the essence of life.
More importantly, it is a moving and powerful statement for the protection of the environment. Whether you look at the pictures of Antarctica, the endangered tigers in India or the polar bears in Canada, you are intuitively aware of the danger of global warming and the importance of preserving the world's natural environments.
Bloom's artistic skill and sensitivity have created a volume I will always treasure.
