Black & White fine art images from the book Shades of Nature, published by HPH Publishing.
Shades of Nature is the black and white sequel to acclaimed Art of Nature. In every way, Shades of Nature is a fresh and daring perspective on the natural world and those that live in it. By removing colour from the visual element, Van den Berg encourages the viewer to interact directly with each image on a subjective level and to take from it a uniquely personal experience.
Shades of Nature dismisses all preconceptions of what classic wildlife photography should be, and how it should be portrayed to the world. It effortlessly defies the norm, to demonstrate that mood and movement, energy and emotion, are the true essence of this craft. Depth of experience rests on art, not colour.
