Photography book review: The Masters of Nature Photography
By Jim Brandenburg, David Doubilet, Pal Hermansen, Frans Lanting, Thomas D Mangelsen, Vincent Munier, Michael Nicholas, Paul Nicklen, Anup Shah and Christian Ziegler
Saturday 31 August 2013
Bringing together the work of "ten of the world's greatest wildlife photographers", all past winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, this jaw-dropping collection showcases startlingly different techniques and obsessions.
Each photographer provides a portfolio of 10, career-defining images, and each offers a brief biography and an introduction to the techniques used: Brandenburg majored in Art & Art History, and spent six months photographing white wolves in the Arctic; Doubilet built his own underwater camera after he first used a snorkel and mask when he was eight years old.
Munier is influenced by Japanese art and photography and likes to work in wild, snowy locations. His most recent trips have been to Antarctica and Tibet – "the most extreme and gruelling of all".
