About this book

Language: French

This is a French translation of 50 Years of Wildlife Photographer of the Year: How Wildlife Photography Became Art

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 French:
Ce livre exceptionnel retrace l'évolution de la photographie de nature depuis 50 ans à travers le prisme du plus prestigieux concours qui lui soit consacré: le Wildlife Photographer of the Year organisé par le Natural History Museum de Londres et BBC Worldwide. Véritable rétrospective de l'évolution de la photographie de nature, ce livre est magnifiquement illustré par les œuvres les plus marquantes sélectionnées parmi les milliers de clichés primés depuis un demi siècle. On y découvre comment ce concours a influencé la prise de vue de la photographie naturaliste qui est devenue aujourd'hui un art à part entière.

Les plus grands photographes de nature ont marqué de leur empreinte le concours et par là même la photographie: Frans Lanting, Jim Brandenburg, Vincent Munier, Michael Nichols, Paul Nicklen... Après une présentation des pionniers, les photographies sont regroupées par thématiques : de l’émergence de la macrophotographie aux prises de vue aériennes ou sous-marines en passant par les portaits, etc. Plus de 150 des plus belles images primées émerveilleront fans du concours, adeptes de la photo et amoureux de la nature.?
