Chris Packham speaks about photography and nature

Closed
In late 70s, when the rest of the teenagers were out meeting their girlfriends in clubs and pubs, Chris Packham, a wildlife presenter, was bent over a microscope searching at badger faeces. Every Thursday evening, he carried out this ritual for 5 years in an effort to find put some unknown views about the ecology of the species. This is a statement of his love for the natural world that appears to have showd itself even before he could speak up.
Therefore, comes a surprise that his newest book ‘100 Things That Caught My Eye,’ carries very few wildlife snaps. Recently, he told that he wanted to appeal all the snappers. As a subject, wildlife is quite niche. He actually wanted to do a book on photography rather than a book on wildlife.
In the collection, the snaps were clicked in over thirty nations and it spans more than twenty five years of traveling. The subjects of Chris Packham are many and varied depending on what captured his eyes. Here, the readers are extended a glance into his imagination at the moment he clicks each snap.
He told that this is about the way people think when taking images. The premise of the book is that photography is an intellectual process. It is a hundred photos, yes, but really it is 100 self critiques of his work.
