WILDLIFE IN WILD LANDS Book Review: Wildlife Photographer Laura Crawford Williams in South America

 

Passionate Wildlife Photographer Laura Crawford Williams Takes Nature Lovers on Enthralling Visual Journey Through South America in Her Newly-Released Book WILDLIFE IN WILD LANDS: Photography for Conservation in Southern South America.

 

 

“IT’S UP TO THOSE OF US WHO KNOW WE CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT WILDLIFE TO INFORM THOSE WHO FOOLISHLY BELIEVE THEY CAN.” Wildlife Photographer Laura Crawford Williams

This Year’s current Deer hunting season in Nova Scotia must be a resounding successful one — for the hunters.  Those hunters have been laying out their big bags of apples and carrots in the woods for weeks, checking their game cams, trading up to bigger four wheelers and side x sides, shaking bottled doe urine on bushes to turn their stands into “kill plots” — this year they were even allowed by the provincial gov to hunt Sundays…

We live on an old farmstead.  Lots of gnarled, aging apple trees still dropping small but sweet apples on the ground.  Attracting lots of deer and other wildlife.

Well, the last couple weeks — not a single deer.  But we’ve seen a small bear.  Raccoons.  Rabbits.  Even a red squirrel rolling a big russet apple into the bushes.  Two juvenile bobcats sniffing around our deck.  Two foxes — a red one and a rare silver fox.  But the deer, even the little ones, are gone.

We love Wildlife.

And wildlife art.  Ever since I was a kid, my favourite artist was book illustrator Charles Livingston Bull, who drew magnificent artwork for fave writers like Sir Charles G D Roberts, Jack London and George Marsh.

Today, those classic illustrators are mostly replaced by skilled wildlife photographers doing beautiful work, showing us the wildest of places and the free, often endangered animals that live there.  Photographers like Laura Crawford Williams.

In three languages, English, Spanish and Portuguese, PR Newswire has just announced this exciting book publication:

“Wildlife photographer Laura Crawford Williams invites you to take a walk with her on the wild side and behold her breathtaking photography captured during her eight-year journey through South America’s most robust landscapes.”

Her book WILDLIFE IN WILD LANDS: Photography for Conservation in Southern South America, a stunning collection of unique animals in dramatic landscapes, is available now.

An internationally recognized and award-winning photographer, Williams captures and shares her inspiring journey within 244 vivid pages, accessible in both English and Spanish.

In WILDLIFE IN WILD LANDS, she commemorates her colourful career. The exclusive images in this table top book resonate with a strong theme of conservation, allowing readers to connect to a world in need of exposure thousands of miles away.

“It’s been an amazing adventure, ten years in the making,” explained Laura. “It’s my sincere hope that WILDLIFE IN WILD LANDS may influence others to care more about the unique, fragile and irreplaceable beauty of our world. It’s up to those of us who know we cannot live without wildlife to inform those who foolishly believe they can.”

Since 2007, she and partner German Ambrosetti traveled together as photographers and videographers, beside scores of conservation-minded individuals and organizations. Together they helped to protect threatened species in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, and Brazil. Their dedication to conservation is poignantly reflected in this inspiring book.

Laura began her photographic career while walking her dog through the forests and prairies around her own home.

Her passion ignited, she began to take wildlife pictures further afield, from bears and snowy owls to lions and Rockhopper penguins.

Her love of photography came naturally and led her to success in many areas.

Laura’s work was soon being published and recognized by such magazines as National Geographic, National Wildlife, The Nature Conservancy and Nature’s Best.

With WILDLIFE IN WILD LANDS: Photography for Conservation in Southern South America she hopes to “inspire intellectual curiosity and invite others to share the same excitement and awe that I experience when working with wildlife in the field.”

The book was created in conjunction with Fundación Parques Nacionales de Argentina (Buenos Aires) and sponsorship from the Tompkins Foundation, Aves Argentina, and Guyaki Mate Company. Argentinian President Mauricio Macri has written the Foreword.

To quote TransMedia Group President Adrienne Mazzone, “every one of the 244 pages, featuring 113 beautifully captured species, inside Laura’s magnificent book is rivetingly poignant and beautiful.”

A Masterwork of the Wild Places.
