Now, they've combined their 70 years of photography experience in order to bring the public an exceptional look at the world of wildlife in their joint venture, aptly titled BIG.
This remarkable photography book, published by teNeues, is a highlight reel of each photographer's best images. Whether taking us underwater with polar bears or observing a tiger quenching its thirst on land, the photographers transport us into their wild world. The excitement and emotion of the images are palpable and each photographer's respect for wildlife is evident in their imagery.
