Exceptional photographs of wild animals and the land in all its purity by acclaimed photographer, Peter Beard


Fascinated by Africa and the writings of Karen Blixen, Peter Beard was twenty-four years old when he moved to Kenya, where he built up an exceptional body of work. His images of wild animals such as crocodiles and elephants, and of the land in all its purity and its wildness, are a huge collage of his experiences. Together with his photographic journals, they show that Peter Beard is unique among contemporary photographers.

The Photofile series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers, in an affordable pocket format. Handsome and collectable, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. The series has been awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography, New York.
