For those of you who share my passion for photographic books, I'm sure you're aware of Nick Brandt's work from Lenswork (#61) or his first book, On This Earth. If not, he makes portraits of animals of Africa that make them appear to be almost human. He's got a new book out, A Shadow Falls. I thought it would be difficult to top his first book, but he's done it. It's absolutely stunning. At the very least, find it in a bookstore and look through it. You'll probably decide to buy it. Absolutely outstanding work.
