About Moods of Nature
Moods of Nature is the black, white and orange sequel to the acclaimed art books Reflection, Shades of Nature and Art of Nature.
Moods of Nature is daring and original. The photography is unique and powerful. The text, in caption format, is a mixture of poetry and philosophy; it complements the images in an extraordinary manner. There is a depth in the visual images that the viewer will only fully appreciate by reading the accompanying words.
As with Shades of Nature, Van den Berg has stripped the images of all colour. By doing so, he has managed to magically add an extra layer to them. In addition, he uses orange as the colour representing mood. Images of that colour dramatically emphasize the black and white medium.
Moods of Nature has depth in thought, design and imagery. It is a work of gravity and imagination that transcends photographic preconceptions and elevates wildlife photography to a new level.
