This title shows where the wild things are, from South America to Africa, up close with rainforest flora and fauna. Jungles is a personal exploration of nature in the tropics by master photographer, storyteller, and naturalist Frans Lanting. In a unique collection of images made over a period of 20 years in jungles from the lowlands of the Congo to the cloud forests of the Andes, Lanting interprets the aesthetic splendor and the remarkable natural history of the tropical rainforest - a realm of bewildering complexity where nothing is the way it first appears. 'While the essence of photography is to show, jungles hide, or at best, suggest', Lanting writes. 'So I opted to show impressions of jungles to evoke a sense of their kaleidoscopic nature - the glimpses of faces that melt into shadows, the bursts of color and shimmering light'. The book features four portfolios of images taken years and continents apart, and stories of field expeditions into tropical wilderness areas. "Water and Light"" shows the interplay of these elements with plant and animal life
