About this book

Our nearest relatives are more alike than you think! Through his lens, photographer Thomas Marent has captured more than 130 species of primates, mostly in their natural environments. These beautiful creatures, from Congolese mountain gorillas, to South American capuchin monkeys, to mouse lemurs in Madagascar, truly reveal their personalities in these images. Their profound – and surprisingly human – relationships with each other will change your perception of primates forever.

Informative text by zoologist Fritz Jantschke, as well as an introduction by Dirk Steffens, Ambassador of the Jane Goodall-Institute Germany, enhance our understanding of the animals' behavior.

Passionate about both photography and nature, Thomas Marent bought his first camera at the age of 16. He first set foot in a rainforest in 1990, in Australia, and has since explored rainforests all over the world, from Indonesia and Rwanda to Argentina and Brazil. His photographs have been published in numerous magazines, books, and calendars. In addition to photography, Marent works as a biologist in Switzerland during the summers, monitoring butterflies, grasshoppers, dragonflies, amphibians and birds. His first book was Rainforest, which has been translated into15 languages, followed by Butterfly, Frog, and Life in the Wild.
