    DescriptionIn every way, this book is a fresh and daring perspective on the natural world and those that live in it. By removing colour from the visual element, the viewer is encouraged to interact directly with each image on a subjective level and to take from it a uniquely personal experience. The text is in caption format, and helps create a multilayered work that hints at both poetry and philosophy. Through Van den Berg's carefully distilled thoughts, readers are enticed to think beyond the obvious and explore a wide canvas of ideas epitomised in nature. "Shades Of Nature" dismisses all preconceptions of what classic wildlife photography should be, and how it should be presented to the world. It effortlessly defies the norm, to demonstrate that mood and movement, energy and emotion, are the true essences of this craft. Depth of experience rests on art, not colour.
