Steve Bloom achieves here a truly breathtaking intimacy not only with the continent’s extraordinary animal life and natural environment but also with its diverse peoples. His remit is staggeringly comprehensive: landscapes from desert to jungle, wildlife from insect to great game, and human life from remote tribal village to teeming metropolis. In a series of essays, Bloom combines vivid personal experience with a passionate articulation of the challenges faced by Africa’s people and environment in the 21st century. Everywhere is apparent his deep affection and affinity for the continent where he grew up, and to which he has felt compelled to return throughout his life.
This edition includes a copy of Living Africa and a limited edition print signed by the photographer, presented together in a special box.
