Nick Brandt is a photographer concentrating on animal and wildlife photography having started in East Africa. His photographs can be found in his book “On this Earth” or at selected galleries worldwide. The example photos in this post are displayed with kind permission of both the Young Gallery and Nick Brandt.
Seeing his photos, as discovered via stumbleupon, their sharpness and choice of detail fascinated me, as they not just focus on everything but on the essential part of the photograph.
As the Daily Telegraph (UK) has said:
“His approach is the antithesis of conventional wildlife photography and moves his work into the arena of fine art. . . . shows you how animal pictures should be taken.” – Press Info
