Visiting game reserves that protect nearby marvelous, larger-than-life animals who roam their home with authority: "The endless cycle of life and death is everywhere repeated." Man is a puny force against predators who have roamed the earth with impunity, finally threatened by extinction and the random slaughter by poachers, who perpetrate the greatest travesty against nature, perhaps irrevocable and tragic for the future of the continent. In the utmost simplicity, artist vs. nature, Krakowiak explores this unique experience, a man who sees beauty all around him, the power, grace and temperament of Africa and its denizens, his creative energy infused with the colors, sights and sounds of a country at its grandest.
Finally, the author/artist offers suggestions for those who seek to follow his example, focusing on each particular artist's objective, assembling essential artist supplies, binoculars, the appropriate camera and a journal to record thoughts, ideas and inspirations. Judging from the quality of this coffee table book, both in image and text, Krakowiak has mastered his own point of perspective, the pictures a powerful testament to the subjects of outstanding work. Luan Gaines/ 2007.
I ordered for a friend in Cape Town, S.Africa and gave to her on Safari and she was amazed. Over and over she kept telling me about the details of the artist and his insight to the animals.
I have ordered a book for myself and thank the artist for the details.
