Australian Geographic Vanishing Act
In this revealing book of unconventional animal portraits, esteemed wildlife photographer Art Wolfe turns his lens on one of the animal kingdom's most fundamental survival techniques: camouflage. Wolfe's carefully orchestrated portraits show animals disappearing into their surroundings through deceptions, disguises, lures and decoys meant to confuse the eyes of predators, prey and photographers alike.
In a world where nothing is truly as it seems, a lion blends into the tall grass of the savannah, a baby harp seal disappears against the snow and a mottled green chameleon clings to a moss-covered tree.
At a time when many species are threatened by permanent disappearance due to habitat loss and human encroachment, Vanishing Act showcases the beauty of animals' natural abilities to vanish, artifully illustrating the extremes they will go to in order to survive in an eat-or-be-eaten world.
