World-renown photographer Jim Brandenburg once again uses the hidden world of his beloved Minnesota northern woods as the setting for a daunting artistic challenge. From 21 June to 21 September, Jim spent each day capturing the spirit of the Minnesota wilderness through the lens of his camera. At the end of each day, Jim edited the day's shoot and picked the best to represent that day's adventure. The resulting book literally teems with life. It is filled with the colour and action of a pristine natural world during its most energetic season of the year. As always, Jim brings the photojournalist's instinct for the critical moment to each photograph. His is a style quite unlike any other nature or wildlife photographer. Welcomed by National Geographic upon initial publication ("Brandenburg shares his world with patience and kindness, one glorious image at a time"), "Looking for the Summer" is now available in the UK, in a new paperback edition.
Jim Brandenburg is one of the best wildlife and nature photographers. He has won many international awards, has been a regular contributor to National Geographic, and features in The World's Top Photographers: Wildlife (RotoVision). He lives in rural Minnesota.
