Prologue by Jonathan Baillie, text by Sam Wells
Tim Flach is an animal photographer with an interest in the way humans shape animals and shape their meaning while exploring the role of imagery in fostering an emotional connection. Bringing to life the complexity of the animal kingdom, his work ranges widely across species, united by a distinctive stylisation reflecting an interest in how we better connect people to the natural world.
In Endangered, the result of an extraordinary multiyear project to document the lives of threatened species, acclaimed photographer Tim Flach explores one of the most pressing issues of our time. Travelling around the world to settings ranging from forest to savannah to the polar seas to the great coral reefs, Flach has constructed a powerful visual record of remarkable animals and ecosystems facing harsh challenges. Among them are primates coping with habitat loss, big cats in a losing battle with human settlements, elephants hunted for their ivory and numerous bird species taken as pets.
With eminent zoologist Jonathan Baillie providing insightful commentary on this ambitious project, and text by Sam Wells, a writer with a passion for conservation, Endangered unfolds as a series of vivid interconnected stories that pose gripping moral dilemmas, unforgettably expressed by more than 180 of Flach's incredible images.
'Photographer Tim Flach's latest book Endangered... offers a powerful visual record of threatened animals and ecosystems facing the harshest of challenges.' –Guardian
