A revised edition of Giacomo Brunelli's classic first book, The Animals. After being out of print for several years a new edition is now available. It includes an additional eight images to the first edition. Brunelli's animals are often composed only of suggestive fragments. His spare black and white images are attuned to the nuances of a moving mane, a silhouetted whisker, a highlighted, almost illuminated wing. He favours the profile and the counterintuitive angle, setting dark unobservable features against dark undiscernable backgrounds. These pictures are timeless and uncanny, powerful in their ordinariness, and emotionally much bigger than their simple subjects.
