Thomas Marent – Rainforest: Ανεκτίμητες εικόνες από τα τροπικά δάση του πλανήτη. Thomas Marent – Rainforest: Amazing portraits from the planet’s unspoiled rainforests

Μια συγκλονιστική συλλογή φωτογραφιών. Για περισσότερα από 16 χρόνια ο φωτογράφος Thomas Marent περιπλανήθηκε στις 5 ηπείρους αναζητώντας τα τροπικά δάση, τους πιο πλούσιους και εξωτικούς βιότοπους του πλανήτη.

Στις εντυπωσιακές σελίδες του καταγράφονται τα εξαίσια χρώματα και οι απίθανες μορφές περισσότερων από 500 ζώων και φυτών μαζί με τις ιστορίες τους.

Follow the story and live the experience of one man's photographic journey through the rainforests of the world. 16+ years in the making, packed with spectacular photographs from Thomas Marent, a self-taught photographer who has dedicated half his life to capturing images of rainforest life, and including captions that present the stories behind the photographs, Rainforest is an extraordinary photographic biography of our planet's most beautiful yet fragile environment.

Overcoming everything from poor light to predatory animals, biting insects, invisible diseases and intense humidity, Thomas Marent has spent his adult life seeking out and photographing the spectacular beauty of the rarest rainforest plants and creatures.

From Peru and Ecuador to New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Marent annotates these breathtaking photographs with a mix personal stories, scientific information, as well as his own photographic processes. He writes about everything from a close-call with a chimp in Uganda to the best time of night to search for dangerous caimans. 

Marent documents the fascinating behaviour and incredible variety of rainforest animals and plants – resourceful colonies of leafcutter ants and poisonous frogs to the multi-hued clouds of butterflies and birds that flutter high in the tree tops. Brimming with fascinating details, exotic and rarely-seen animals and lush green spaces, Rainforest is a true celebration of the world's greatest biological treasures.
