Moods of Nature is the black, white and orange sequel to the acclaimed art books Reflection, Shades of Nature and Art of Natureby Heinrich van den Berg.
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. In 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 emphasise 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.
Heinrich van den Bergis an international award-winning wildlife photographer, and is also an accomplished writer and publisher. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Van den Berg is well known for pushing the boundaries of photography to create explosive images that are as beautiful as they are emotive.
Van den Berg heads his own publishing company, HPH Publishing, and has successfully published over 20 full-colour wildlife titles since 2001. His books are highly acclaimed for both their quality and content.
Along with other photographs from the HPH fold, Heinrich has featured prominently in numerous coffee-table books, calendars, magazine portfolios and other photographic publications worldwide. Both national and international magazines such as National Geographic, GEO, TERRA, Terra Sauvage, the New York Times, the Times of London, Getaway, Africa Geographic, Go! and numerous others have published HPH work.
Van den Berg also shares his photography knowledge through exclusive workshops held in various parts of
I just love this book. It's different, its unique. It opens your mind and eye to new and interesting possibilities that you normally don't see in nature.
It's not always just about the big five or portraits. It's about the experiences and the finer details that mother nature has perfected over many years.
Thanks for showing us this and opening up our minds and photographic eyes.
Setting new challenges for myself after seeing this amazing book.
It's a must!
I was absolutely captivated, and with every page, I felt like I was going on a journey……it was a journey of emotions and feelings that left me wanting more. Moods of Nature has influenced me tremendously, and I have no doubt that as with Van den Berg's previous art books, many people will feel the positive influence he strives to share.
