Steve Bloom


This magnificent photographic survey is a personal tour through the length and breadth of Africa by one of the world’s leading nature and wildlife photographers. 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.
