5.0 out of 5 stars Nick Brandt - On This Earth
This is photography at its most tender and painterly. Dont be fobbed off with the cheaper version. This is the only one worth buying. The depth and intimacy are heart opening. Really great photography.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some disappointment
The quality of printing and power of imagery is beyond question. Unfortunately, some of the compositions are very similar, so become boring and annoying. Would like to have seen more variety.
This book is a must for those keen on wildlife photography and the monochrome genre. Makes a good display on anyone's coffee table.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning book!, 19 Nov. 2012

This review is from: On This Earth, a Shadow Falls (Hardcover)
If you love Africa and its animals and enjoy exceptional photography, then this is the book for you! Nick Brandt's images of Africa will blow your mind! There are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to adequately describe the quality of the photographs as well as the final publication. Absolutely superb comes close, but hey, just buy the book and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed!

I have just received this book. It is difficult to find words and adjectives to describe this book. Nick Brandt's work is sublime, and one is in awe. He transcends what people may term as wildlife photography. The prints make one cry with joy and sorrow at the same time, as the beauty and vulnerability are synced as one. It is poetry, art, history, documentation blended into one and more, of the sheer beauty and majesty of what we have inherited and what is being continually lost, and is being stolen from us and we know it is happening. I have never experienced anything like this with images, and it has touched me like nothing else before. The images transports me to Africa, the vast space, the beautiful African sky, and the stunning animals who should equally own it along with its people, where I have never been, but I am. The plates in the book are of the highest quality and jaw opening and makes you wonder as to how can someone can take the portraits and panoramic images without telephoto or zoom. They are just astonishing, astounding totally meditative! Every home, school and library should have one.

what a beautiful book, it is a real 'coffee table book' for precious moments of quiet reflection, of these wonderful, beautiful animals, how can those awful people kill them for their ivory, barbaric.....

5.0 out of 5 stars What a masterpiece., 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On This Earth, a Shadow Falls (Hardcover)
I have Nick Brandt's 3 books and I have to say this one is one of my favourite ones as it combines 2 of his books. The photos are amazing. Sadly the elephant bull you see on the cover "Igor" was poached in 2009.

This review is from: On This Earth, a Shadow Falls (Hardcover)
Brilliant photoes of African wildlife. Beautiful, suggestive and stunning pictures but always with a thought of the conditions the animals have to endure in today's Africa.
