Worshipping with a Camera

Other Nations; The Creatures Who Share This Planet With Us

by Gordon Illg and Cathy Illg

Book Image Not Available
Overview

Henry Beston, a gifted writer from the last century, came up with this description of wildlife: "We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the Earth." The animals who share this world with us have been here far longer than we have, and they can help us understand our relationship with other life forms, with the Earth, and with the Creator behind it all. Using powerful images and powerful words Worshipping With A Camera shows the readers they are part of an almost impossibly wonderful world. This book will leave the reader feeling inspired and more secure about their place in the universe.

About the author

For more than 50 years the natural world has been inspiring Gordon and Cathy Illg, and for the past two decades it has been their office as well. Perhaps it was Gordon's degree in Wildlife Biology that caused them to emphasize our wild neighbors in their images. Whatever the reason though, animals often feature prominently in their photos. Their work appears in nearly every major nature publication, including numerous covers for magazines like Backpacker, National Wildlife, National Geographic Explorer and Ranger Rick. They have done well in photo contests, and have even been flown to London to accept awards in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition. Several of their images decorate the tails of Frontier Airlines' jets, and they currently run nature photography tours through their own company, Adventure Photography.
