Following the ascendance of Art of Nature, Heinrich van den Berg challenges convention to resounding success in the black-and-white sequel Shades of Nature. His fearless approach inspires the reader to see the hidden depths of his images, to subjectively appreciate both the aesthetic and the emotional. His writing is, as usual, startling in its astute erudition couched as casual wit. This work truly confronts the definitions and parameters of art.
Heinrich van den Berg and Philip and Ingrid van den Berg are considered among the best wildlife photographers in South Africa. Together they have won numerous international and national awards and have been published widely, by among others National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, GEO and the New York Times.
