About this book

Language: German

This is a collection of the most beautiful and memorable pictures taken over the 50-year history of what is now the world's most prestigious wildlife photography competition. The pictures also tell the story of how the competition has marked the development of nature photography over the past half century, how it has influenced it, and how the very best images should be valued as art of a high order.

The photographs are grouped around subjects related to the competition and photography in general, from the pioneers of wildlife photography, to the use of low light, aerial shots, close-up imagery, underwater photography and more. The pictures are organised chronologically within these groups and each picture caption puts the photograph in context, bringing out its importance, as well as telling the relevant story. All those who have viewed this compelling exhibition since its inception 50 years ago, will marvel at this astounding volume.

Summary in German:
Zum 50-jährigen Jubiläum des weltweit angesehensten Wettbewerbs für Natur- und Tierfotografie erscheint dieser prachtvolle Band. Er versammelt die außergewöhnlichsten der eingereichten und prämierten Arbeiten und macht die Entwicklung der Naturfotografie in diesen Jahren nachvollziehbar. So wurde der eher dokumentarische Wert früherer Bilder durch eine hohe Ästhetik abgelöst, die die Aufmerksamkeit auf seltene Naturphänomene oder die Bedrohung von Tier und Natur lenkt.

Durch herausragende Beispiele für unterschiedliche Aufnahmetechniken kann man den Fortschritt der Fotografie in diesen Bereichen genau verfolgen. Ergänzende Texte würdigen die einzelnen Werke und ordnen sie in die Entwicklungsgeschichte der Fotografie ein.
