‘Incredible … a testament to the sanctity of nature’ – Outdoor Photography
‘Awe-inspiring photographs of the world’s wild animals … magnificent’ – Amateur Photographer
These unforgettable images will astonish anyone who sees them, as the full force of environmental destruction of the planet and its creatures is revealed.
Steve Bloom's goal has been to search for the spirit of the world’s wildlife: tigers' eyes gleaming in the jungles of India; polar bear cubs seeing the world for the first time; the few mountain gorillas left in Africa.
Accompanied by his own commentaries, as passionate as they are informed, and thought-provoking quotes from figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Gerald Durrell and Emily Dickinson, Spirit of the Wild brings to the fore the common experiences of all living beings.
Steve Bloom, born in South Africa, is a bestselling photographer of the natural world. He is the author of several books, including Elephant! and Untamed, which was described by Outdoor Photography Magazine as ‘the best case yet for the defence of the earth.’
