London: Thames and Hudson, 2008. Octavo, dustwrapper, colour photographs.
Here is a new, compact gift edition of Steve Bloom's breathtaking photographs of wildlife around the world. Bloom's goal, brilliantly realised here, is to capture the animals' spirit: the tiger's eye gleaming brightly in the jungles of India; polar bear cubs seeing the world for the first time; and, the rare mountain gorilla's of Africa. The result is a perpetual dance for the eye, the embodiment of nature's choreography and an intimate exploration which reveals not only the animals but much that is new about ourselves.
