'Living Landscapes' builds upon the success of Andy Rouse's Concepts of Nature (ISBN 978 1 902538 52 5), using stunning artistic images combined with thought-provoking essays to illustrate the relationships between animals and the fragile environments in which they live. Using award-winning wide-angle techniques, abstracts and some very creative usage of light and motion, Andy Rouse shows why he is one of the best and most creative wildlife photographers in the world. Themed portfolios explore the concepts of wilderness, dimensions and dark light whilst galleries show Rouse's stunning project work on snow geese, the wildebeest migration and the Galapagos Islands. The essays that introduce each chapter show Rouse's passion for the natural world and seek not only to question but also to inspire. In a final chapter which takes the form of an in-depth interview, Rouse explores the sources of his vision and explains the way in which he tries to tell a story through his images. Aspects of Nature is a must-read for anyone who is passionate about nature and loves photography as the ultimate art form of self-expression.
