This extravagant volume offers an up-close and personal look at the work and life of photographer, collector, diarist and writer Peter Beard. While primarily known for his work as a photographer, Beard is also an activist who was troubled by big game hunting and colonialism in Kenya. He began documenting the destruction through a collage of photos, journal annotations, newspaper clippings, dried leaves, drawings – even animal blood used as paint. Originally published in 2006 as a two-volume series – signed by the artist – it sold out instantly. Now this highly sought-after book is available as one volume, with new, never-before-published images.
