How wildlife photography became art. The ultimate book of wildlife photography, with 200 award-winning images from the BBC competition. Fifty years ago, the BBC originated a now-famous competition open to professional and amateur photographers. It was a pioneering display of "photographic hunting" and shaped how we now see the natural world. With time, better access to wildlife, and improved equipment (especially underwater), the world's best photographers continued to make astounding pictures. They captured moments of speed, flight, aggression and repose in ways that brought the deserts, African plains, and tropical and polar regions into our homes. This book showcases the work of 50 years and hundreds of award winners. The exhibition, based at London's Natural History Museum, travels the world and features the work of: Frans Lanting Jim Brandenburg David Doubilet Art Wolfe Tom Mangelson Brian Skerry Paul Nicklen Anup Shah and many others.
