In this large-format book, overflowing with extraordinary photographs, Art remarks on being influenced by Dutch artist M.C. Escher. The consequences are evident in many of his shots, which range from overhead views of elephants, flamingos, and snow geese to an eye-to-eye view of ladybird beetles. To get the varied perspectives in his shots, Wolfe has flown, floated, canoed, waded, and snorkeled on four continents, photographing mammals, birds, and insects. Each set of four to six photos is followed by a few paragraphs of brief but informative text, prepared by science writer Barbara Sleeper and often including intriguing facts or comparisons.
