One thought occured to me. Because some of these prints are sepia toned and look as if they were taken a century or more ago, I felt as if I was looking at creatures that were long dead. Jane Goodall states how tragic it would be if future generations were to look at these beautiful portraits and not be able to see them in the wild. Anyone looking at these photographs cannot fail to be moved by them.
On This Earth is Nick Brandt first book and I can see how his skill with a Camera has improved between the two books. This is not to say his phosts are in way bad in this book. They are simply Stunning! A quick flick thru' this book and you realise how good Nick is. But examine each picture and you realise that Nick has a major talent, whichj makes my efforts at photography look feeble.
I also love the Sepia effect to these pieces of art and the fact that the wildlife in the shots is not necessarily the main focus.
There is a feeling of life to these pictures and you can almost feel that you were there looking over Nick shoulder when he pressed the shutter release.
This book is fab and would recommend it to anybody interested in Photography or African Wildlife!
Also to consider is the way he has composed the shots, he has somehow caught a little but of the animals essence i find myself looking at some of the photographs and getting lost in them.
Also it was amazon who was my savior in being able to purchase the book at all as it was impossible to try buy this book through normal retail streams everywhere told me it was of of print.

Some of the most amazing photographs. This book is like having a book of photographic printed material rather than a book of printed material. Stunning!Published on 6 Jan. 2013 by MP
