Art Wolfe’s photographs are magically composed and stunningly beautiful. Like nature poetry of the first rank, they pull our emotions closer to some of the most charismatic and (sadly) endangered animal species of the world.”
Edward O. Wilson
Art Wolfe is an artist. He works with all of the artistic elements . . . line, form, texture, composition, light and shadow, and produces visual masterpieces from the real world. Turning the pages of The Living Wild brings on not only a psychological reaction but a physical reaction . . . my jaw drops and my breath is almost taken away by the imagination and beauty he has brought to us.”
Art Wolfe’s brilliant and sensitive photographs are a powerful stimulation for changing attitudes. Art is passionately involved in the life-and-death struggle of the African continent, its people, its wildlife, and its forests, woodlands, savannahs, and deserts. His love and commitment are revealed in each photograph and these, in turn, will stir the heart of the reader.”
[A] master of the most advanced photographic techniques.”
Roger Tory Peterson
Art has the broadest range of excellence of any nature photographer I know.”

This book kept a group of 5 kids ranging from 6 to 16 engaged for almost an hour turning the pages and talking about every image. The parents were so surprised that, when the kids finished, they picked up the book and ended up spending another half hour browsing through every page.
Creating and assembling a collection of photographs that can do that is a very impressive feat. This is a book worth owning.
