National Geographic the Photo Ark
National Geographic the Photo Ark: One Man's Quest to Document the World's Animals | Joel Sartore
This lush book of photography represents National Geographic's Photo Ark, a major cross-platform initiative and lifelong project by photographer Joel Sartore to make portraits of the world's animals--especially those that are endangered. His powerful message, conveyed with humor, compassion, and art: to know these animals is to save them. Sartore intends to photograph every animal in captivity in the world. He is circling the globe, visiting zoos and wildlife rescue centers to create studio portraits of 12,000 species, with an emphasis on those facing extinction. He has photographed more than 6,000 already and now, thanks to a multi-year partnership with National Geographic, he may reach his goal. This book showcases his animal portraits: from tiny to mammoth, from the Florida grasshopper sparrow to the greater one-horned rhinoceros. Paired with the eloquent prose of veteran wildlife writer Douglas Chadwick, this book presents a thought-provoking argument for saving all the species of our planet.

The hubby and I are watching the PBS shows on The Photo Ark project this morning. There is also a companion book (pictured). This guy has spent years photographing the world's rarest animals before they disappear. He goes to great lengths to shoot them in front of a white or black background so he can eliminate distractions and really show off the beauty of the animals. Highly recommended based on the TV shows! 🐯🐼🐦🐊🐙🐌🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

#TBRtemptation post 4! This is such a gorgeous book!!! The photos inside are breath-taking...well, we are talking National Geographic here 😊. The world-class photographer gives special attention to endangered species. Nat Geo has teamed up with Sartore to accomplish his goal of photographing the 12,000 species who have members held in captivity, and he's gotten over 6,000 so far. A great coffee table book! #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

"This baby was being raised by human moms who worked at the zoo. She refused to not be held by a human at all times, so we had to do the portrait with her caregiver holding on from the waist down, just out of frame. That made the baby feel safe, secure, and even willing to ham it up a bit for the camera." Chimpanzee baby, Latin name Pan troglodytes; listed as endangered.

"Can we survive without these things [animal diversity]? Sure, up to a point. The question is, What exactly will we survive as? It takes animals to make us fully realize what it means to be human."

Pardon me while I'm sat over here all but shitting my pants over getting my paws on this book today!!! Obsessed with Joel Sartore's work with photographing and cataloging endangered animals for a massive natgeo project. Last year (ish?) there was a spread of some of his photos in the publication and when I heard a book was coming out I flipped. Ad now it's here. In my hands. Eeeeeeeeeee 😊
