Regard Sauvage French Book Just Out!

Regard Sauvage

Art Wolfe, photographe animalier mondialement reconnu, nous livre ici la quintessence de son travail photographique. Ses récits émaillent l’ouvrage divisé en sept chapitres : Amérique du Nord, Afrique, Antarctique, Europe, Océanie, Amérique du Sud et Asie. Chacune de ces parties est précédée par un texte dans lequel Art Wolfe lui-même se confie sur son expérience unique.

À travers de nombreuses anecdotes, il nous livre les situations insolites auxquelles il a été confronté lors de ses nombreux voyages aux quatre coins du globe. Il nous raconte, par exemple, ses longues promenades en compagnie de manchots royaux, sa rencontre extraordinaire avec un gigantesque lion, ou encore la fois où, alors qu’il cherchait le bon angle pour une photo, il s’est retrouvé coincé sous un bébé éléphant de mer. Le récit de ces moments rares est illustré par des photographies exceptionnelles, dont seul Art Wolfe a le secret, et qui reflètent l’immense talent de ce photographe animalier hors du commun.

Review:

I’m giving this book to all my dog loving friends this Christmas. Gorgeous photos by Art Wolfe and lively and emotional text by Jeffrey Masson.

What I like most about this book is that it has avoided the usualy cutesy pictures. Rather it has a kind of multicultural theme. It shows us the universal bond between humans and dogs. With pictures of stone age tribes, asian boat people, African children, and rich snoots on Fifth Avenue.

The publisher compared this book to The Family of Man. That seems entirely appropriate. And it is time to acknowledge that dogs are part of that universal family as well.
