About this book

Intimate, personal photographic study, the result of expeditions to the Falklands, S Georgia and Antarctica. Revealed are the natural history and the appeal of the most human of birds in a collection of more than 100 beautiful photographs. Among the penguins studied are rockhoppers, Magellanics, gentoos, king, and emperor penguins. Now available in a small format paperback.

"This book is a personal interpretation of the penguins I met, rather than a natural history of all penguins."
- Frans Lanting

This book is a personal interpretation of the penguins I met, rather than a natural history of all penguins, Frans Lanting writes. "I wanted to create an impression of who these penguins are and what they go through. I hope my work will be seen as an homage to the individual within them all.
