Amazing Animal Photography by Andrew Zuckerman

Andrew Zuckerman is known for his award-winning still life and portrait photography. We have seen the film High Falls directed by him and have enjoyed his documentary Still Bill, theatrically released in 2010. This talented person has started the project to document animals and humans in a series of books and films and it began in 2005. It is impossible to imagine the breathtaking animal photography and a number of people portraits that were created by him, but we can find all of them in various books published during recent years. As for me, I admire the animal series by Andrew Zuckerman and it is definitely worth seeing. Let’s enjoy this amazing animal photography!
