About this title


A collection of stunning photographs of animals--by some of the greatest photographers of all time--help children appreciate photography and understand how photographs are made. By the author of the Looking at Paintings series.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8?Eighteen photographs of animals, some in color, most in black and white, are analyzed in this appealing book about how a camera can make humans see the various creatures of the world in new ways. The pictures, all by well-known photographers, are arranged in chronological order, from a sample of Eadweard Muybridge's studies of motion, dated 1885, to a 1992 portrait of penguins and their chicks by Art Wolfe. The emphasis is on understanding the choices the artists made, from backlighting to flash, from bird's-eye view to eye level, from aerial shots to microphotography. Each full-page photo that Coleman focuses on is balanced by a small shot that reinforces, by contrast or comparison, the point he is making. This volume is a pleasure to look at and the lessons in visual literacy are easy to absorb and remember. Young readers will surely be inspired to take camera in hand and practice the craft of photography choosing subject, composition, and point of view as demonstrated here.?Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ
