Brajesh's Review : On Safari - The Tiger and the Baobab Tree
While on a week-end get-away at the Velavadar black buck sanctuary, I found this beautiful book - "On Safari. The Tiger and the Bobab Tree" by Babi Nobis in the resort library.
The size of my list of unread-but-purchased books, gives me little motivation to purchase expensive photo books. These photo-books end-up being a one-time indulgence. Hence every time I find an opportunity to lay my hands on a photo-books I try and flip through it immediately.
“On Safari” is a collection of photos by Babi during his journeys in India and Africa. My favorite section is the one on the Indian Tiger which has many amazing pictures. These are beautifully laid out and printed on a very fine paper, both increasing the impact of these great photographs.
I have attached two collages from the book (pictures taken of the book) to give you an idea of how powerful the images are.
Babi is the founder board member of the wildlife protection society of India and his love for the animals is evident in the stories and nuggets accompanying the photos.
