Abrams, New York, 2013. 120 pp., 52 quadtone illustrations, 15x13".
Across the Ravaged Land is the third and final volume in Nick Brandt’s trilogy of books documenting the disappearing animals of eastern Africa. The book offers a darker vision of this world, still filled with a stunning beauty but now tragically tainted and fast disappearing at the hands of man.
In addition to a range of starkly powerful animal portraits, Brandt introduces some new themes, as humans make an appearance for the first time. He also contributes two essays summing up his photographic odyssey, which has taken more than a decade of intensive work to complete.
For $200 (plus shipping), you'll receive a signed copy of the book, including the option of a personalized dedication/inscription, handwritten by Brandt. 75% of the proceeds benefit Big Life Foundation USA directly.
