For the first time a wildlife photography book is crafted through the emotions felt by its photographers. When we encounter an animal in nature, we have a direct emotional response to it. We can feel awe, admiration, fascination, and yes, sometimes love or fear as well. Marko and Amos bring you face to face with the biggest animals through their amazing photos. They also share their emotions getting very close to giant grizzly and polar bears, diving with great white and whale sharks, photographing roaring tigers and lions, observing up-close gorillas, leopard seals, bisons, eagles and more. And even approaching 200-tons blue whales.
Marko Dimitrijevic and Amos Nachoum are friends, and in their combined 70 years of experience photographing wildlife, they have taken hundreds of sensational photos of animal encounters in the wild. For the first time ever, they have assembled their best photos of the world’s largest animals in BIG. The photographers also tell us what it is like to look these giants in the eye. Nachoum and Dimitrijevic invite everyone to consider how the animals reflect our natures and what we can learn about ourselves by observing them and protecting them.
