Editorial Reviews

Review

David Gulden's 2006 photograph of a mother leopard taking a 'late-morning nap' in Kenya's Itong Hills is a revelation. She couldn't be more relaxed. She couldn't be more like your house cat settled on your favorite blanket on the couch. Mr. Gulden is an obsessive, willing to work for years to capture a shot of an animal in its habitat, unconcerned by human encroachment... For a shot of a crowned eagle and its young, the photographer tried dozens of mounds... The final shot of the mother, flying in with green leaves in her talons as her chick looks on, is an astonishing split-second drama. (Wall Street Journal)

'Gulden's black and white still portraits... are breathtaking... The Centre Cannot Hold is a superb photographic document of a disappearing world.' (Le Journal de la Photographie)

'The product of Gulden's efforts is a beautiful collection of true wildlife photography that provides the reader with a unique perspective of nature—one that is not preoccupied with manicured landscapes, generic compositions, or predictable framing. It's a must-have title for both animal and photography enthusiasts alike.' (Andrew Lasane Complex Art+ Design, October 18, 2012)

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Jean Miele on November 13, 2012
Format: Hardcover
"The Centre Cannot Hold" is not a coffee-table book. It's an epic poem. It's a symphony. It's that rare whole that is so far greater than the sum of its parts, it proves a bunch of marks on paper can speak directly to the best, deepest part of us as human beings. The book's message could not be more important, and Gulden's vision could not be more authentic. Nor could his photographs, expressed in superbly rendered black-and-white, be more intimate or more beautiful. Factor in stunning reproduction and a lovingly-conceived, beautifully-paced book design, and you've got something really, really special. Buy it now.

Mr. Gulden definitely has some kind of patience and perseverance; his photographs are mesmerizing, beautiful, artistic and a view into the wild as you have likely not seen it before. This is a book for all ages. I gave this to my son for Christmas and it was the one gift that everyone wanted to sit down and look at. Mr. Gulden has captured the beauty, solitude, and delicate balance of life of the wild animals in Africa as no one has for some time.

Mr. Gulden, an environmentalist as well as a photographer, has spent nearly half a year for the last 20 in Africa patiently photographing the rapidly changing landscape and habit of Africa. His book is also designed to inspire in all of us the desire to preserve and protect this vanishing natural resources and work towards positive global change. And if you're wondering about the title, it's from Yeats' poem "The Second Coming" which is about this very thing.

David did an incredible job on this book. The photographs are unreal. Perfect book to have on your coffee table. It is truly amazing how he captures such candid shots of these animals.
