Wildlife photographer Rouse is a prominent presence on television and in print (including National Geographic) whose previous books include the stunning Concepts of Nature. Through years of field expeditions, Rouse has become a naturalist as well as an artist; having grown less interested in wildlife portraits, Rouse now focuses on the everyday activity of wildlife. From a polar bear roaring into a storm to the astounding Picasso-like formations of starling flocks, this volumecaptures the ecological landscape of which animals are just a part: a distance shot of a Bengal tiger reclining in a temple ruin overrun by jungle captures the jungle cat in intimate relation to its place and time. Some images feature a sharply-focused animal against a time-lapsed background: a crouching lioness amidst blowing tree branches, a Sally Lightfoot crab enveloped in surf, the cascading motion of birds in flight. Rouse's captions illuminate not just his photographic technique, but his ecological concerns; he also provides sound photographic advice throughout. Non-photographers will enjoy the artwork, and nature-lovers should be riveted.

The Pointed Pundit has spent the past week savoring the images in Andy Rouse's new book, Living Landscapes.       Like most artists, Andy's work continues to evolve. In some ways, I am not sure it is for the better. In his previous book, Concepts of Nature, Andy used the light to make spectacular portraits of animals in the wild. His current effort attempts to go beyond that, seeking to capture the relationships between those animals and their ecosystems.    …
