Sacred Nature 2: Reconnecting People to Our Planet
Sacred Nature 2:
Reconnecting People to Our Planet showcases stunning and inspirational images from multi award-winning wildlife and travel photographers Jonathan and Angela Scott, The Scott's are the only couple to have won the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition as individuals. With more than 140 images in colour and black and white, SN2 takes a global view. It captures the wonder and awe that our Planet's wild landscapes evoke, from the animal-filled savannas of East Africa to the crystal deserts of Antarctica. It highlights the urgent need for all of us to reconnect with Nature, celebrating our world's breathtaking beauty while reminding us of what we stand to lose. Designed by David Scott and with lyrical and informative text, SN2 has been printed by Artron to the highest standards.
Sacred Nature Volume 2 is a beautiful 288-page fine art wildlife photography book, supporting the protection of our planet and its priceless wild places. This book takes the ethos of the first volume and applies it to the whole planet - to our savannahs, forests, deserts, mountains, oceans and polar regions. Jonathan and Angela's intention is to reveal the wonder and beauty of our world, instilling a sense of awe and concern for its well being.
In 2016 Jonathan and Angela Scott published their award-winning book Sacred Nature: Life’s Eternal Dance. This book, the standard edition of which is now out of print, was Angela's vision brought to life by the artistry of their son David’s design work. The book was met with overwhelming success and won Gold in the 2017 Independent Publishers awards (IPPY) for Photography.
Volume 1 centred around a place close to the Scotts’ hearts -the vast Mara-Serengeti ecosystem in East Africa where they have spent much of the past forty years, somewhere they describe as The Last Place on Earth. This is a corner of Eden so breathtaking to behold that it is almost beyond belief that it might one day die for lack of care and foresight on the part of humanity. We must do everything we can to help protect these last wild places. The Scotts explored the natural rhythms that permeate the African savannas and woodlands, illuminating life’s eternal dance.
