More than human
Flach, Tim
Adult Nonfiction TR727 .F59 2012

Comments  Summary  Author Notes

Summary: Award-winning photographer Tim Flach has spent years inquiring into the essential bond we have with animals. Now he presents the culmination of a career-long endeavor, an extraordinary body of work in which each image is more striking and powerful than the last. Just as did Flach's highly acclaimed previous books, Equus and Dogs , More than Human will amaze and inspire, in a constant affirmation of the animal, whether it be rare or common, powerful or defenseless, odd or majestic. The book showcases a menagerie of creatures--pandas, tigers, bats, lions, orangutans, cobras, bullfrogs, chimpanzees, wolves, porcupines, elephants, owls, armadillos, among many others--as they have never been seen before. Shedding light on Flach's images will be an accessible collection of texts, written and edited by author Lewis Blackwell. Praise for More Than Human: "A gallery of animal portraits that are unlike anything we've seen before." -- The Wall Street Journal "His technique is impeccable; this is one of the most gorgeous photography books of the year. But what makes it more than a coffee-table trifle is the way Flach's images connect us--with near-tactile sensation and soulfulness--to the creatures on display." --NPR.org "Arresting portraits that express photographer Flach's 'sense of wonderment in nature.'" -- People " Astoundingly sharp images." - The San Francisco Chronicle "Compelling and unexpected." -- The Denver Post "Treat yourself to the full glory of More Than Human , for the screen hardly does it justice." --Brain Pickings.com "A book of animal photographs guaranteed to dazzle viewers with their color, detail, clarity and, most of all, their uncanny 'humanity.'"-- BookPage
