Akin to human portraiture, Nick Brandt’s wildlife photography bears little relation to conventional colour documentary styles. His work is testament to his desire to capture the personality of his subjects; to achieve this he prefers to be as close as possible to the animals. “You wouldn’t take a portrait of a human being from a hundred feet away and attempt to capture their spirit; you’d move in close.” In doing so, Brandt’s works have a unique, intimate quality to them.
