Un livre, pas des moins chers, mais un Must pour tous les amoureux des animaux sauvages et de la photographie. Les prises de vue époustouflantes sont accompagnées de courts textes expliquant dans quelles circonstances les animaux ont été "mis en boîte*. Un livre original, qui nous fait voir la vie animale africaine sous un jour différent et passionnant. On ne se lasse pas de voir et revoir les clichés. Un excellent cadeau de Noël (mais pas seulement) pour petits et grands.

Up close and personal 5 septembre 2012
Par Laura Barwick - Publié sur
Format: Relié
There have been many television programmes featuring footage of animals shot from `remote cameras' - and indeed many infra-red triggered shots of animals in the wild featured in well known photographic competitions. However Serengeti Spy is the first book dedicated entirely to ground level photographs, concentrating on the East African grasslands and on well known species...but revealing them in a fresh, very personal way.

Anup Shah spent months hiding multiple cameras in key locations across the savanna in order to capture intimate images of animals living in their environment, with no human presence to affect their behaviour. The result is the most amazing portfolio of the usual characters (lion, cheetah, elephant, wildebeest etc) but in the most unusual of poses and from strikingly low angles.

This book does not shy away from huge image usage - from the cover, inside jacket to a glorious number of stunning double page spreads... this is a perfect coffee table book indeed. Should you manage to stop marvelling at the images for a minute however and turn your eye to the text then Shah supports his art with well crafted words that supply the detail to the animal's behaviour, the season it was taken in, what the animal did prior or after the shutter was released. It's an effective combination - lots of images, not too much text.

Shah's intention was to view a well-known area to himself from a different perspective, that of a hunter-gatherer. Not many of us will ever be able to creep up on a lion feeding on the flesh and bones of a gazelle, perhaps not many of us would actually want to, but it's a real privilege to be amongst the legs of adult elephants, standing protectively around a small vulnerable calf, finding its feet for the first time. We all know that the annual migration is one of masses of herbivores stampeding across plains and rivers...but these images taken on the river banks allow us a view of the chaos created by hooves, dust and spray, that its any wonder the camera equipment survives at all and I'm fairly sure that's a subject in itself Shah could write extensively on too.

So those of you that devour natural history photography books, this is an obvious new addition to your collection and those who have been on safari then this offers a chance to relive the experience, but the photos you could never hope to get (unless you fell out a vehicle onto the ground and happened to have your camera in your hand). And for all those who love to travel from the safety of their armchairs, well it doesn't get much closer to nature than this.

Intriguing title well worth investigating 4 septembre 2012
Par Discerning Reader - Publié sur

There are many books on wildlife of East Africa. This book, however,offers something unique.

The book is not a thriller, and the spy is not an agent, but a hidden camera. The internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer, Anup Shah, hid multiple cameras in key locations across the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, and the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The result of such use of cameras is a fabulous book of photographs showing the wildlife in its most natural state. The photographs are arranged by season.

Majority of people in their encounter with wildlife in their natural environment view the animals from a distance, usually in a four wheel drive. The starting point of Shah's enquiry was whether the photographic distance prevents us from entering the world of wild animals. If that distance is eliminated, then maybe we can feel what it is like to be among the animals. Maybe we can see animals as they see one another themselves, not as human beings see them.

The photographs attempt to invoke feelings. Because the hidden cameras can get so close to the animals, a fuller range of emotions opens up as the reader enters the world of the animals in their own private space, on their own terms. Thus the maximum pleasure and thrill out of this book is there for the readers who let themselves be enabled to become truly empathetic to the animals and their world.
The use of the hidden cameras allows photographs to be taken at unusually close angles. There are extraordinary photographs in the book. We can see what the world may look like through the eyes of the animals. Take the example of the baby elephants in a herd of the adult elephants or the baby zebra in the midst of the migration. In addition, because of the perspective chosen by the photographer, one can almost feel the power of the wildebeest as they stampede on the plains
(p 47).

The feelings clearly demonstrated in the close up pictures remind the reader of the emotions of the human beings- the anger of the leopard on p. 66-7, the playfulness of a tender age in the lion cubs on p34-5. the wisdom of the baboon on p 199.

The stunning photographs in Serengeti SPY give us a wonderful insight into the reality of the animals as they are experiencing it.

Anup Shah uses mobile camera platforms to get right into the very breath of the Serengeti. Animals that you have seen before are given new perspectives and appreciation. Ever been in the midst of a wildebeest migration? Anup Shah had his cameras there. For too close for comfort is the name of the game for the remote cameras and every image is a thoughtful composition about the very nature of nature.

Amazing 22 décembre 2012

Beautiful. Magnificent. Moving. Captivating. You have never seen anythinglike this, I guarantee.
I bought it for my 10 year old granddaughter. She is going to LOVE it. There are a few photos I was concerned about. One was of a stranded baby animal. You know it's end is not going to be pretty. It is heart wrenching, so I talked to my daughter ahead of time and she's ready for the strong feelings the photos will bring up. Great life lesson.
Very highly recommend.
