THE CENTRE CANNOT HOLD
“It's a must-have title for both animal and photography enthusiasts alike.”
“Mr. Gulden works in two great photographic traditions—that of Edward Curtis, who devoted his life to documenting the passing of a way of life, and that of Ansel Adams, who wanted to make photos of nature that were indelible. To have combined them is another remarkable accomplishment.”
“The best African wildlife photos yet.” –Peter Beard
In this compilation of 15 years worth of photographic mastery, studying alongside the likes of Peter Beard, wildlife photographer David Gulden captures the incredible animals of Africa. Whether they be common or endangered, he captures them in all their glory and intrigue without romanticizing them as so many photographers have done previously. Most poignantly Gulden not only documents incredible photographs, but also documents the declining landscape home of the creatures who inhabit the majestic space. The photographs capture various aspects of animal life—tranquility, action, portraiture. He visualizes the concept of global change so famously described by William Butler Yeats in his poem “The Second Coming.”
The photographs are unusual in that they capture the personalities of animals. By hanging and setting up cameras with infra-red beams he was able to capture up-close images at all times of day. He was even able to capture the elusive mountain bongo with his camera traps.
David Gulden is a native New Yorker who has spent at least half of every year for the past twenty in Africa, primarily in Kenya, where he has fastidiously photographed virtually every form of wildlife across the country from the Masai Mara to Lake Turkana. He has been educated in the United States and is a graduate of The Pomfret School in Conneticut, the National Outdoor Leadership School in Kenya, and Roanoke College in Virginia.
