Zebras in the California desert, polar bears on an island off the Irish coast, a crocodile in the Loire, a buffalo in a snowy Swiss forest—in the computer-enhanced world created here by fashion and documentary photographer Frank Horvat, native habitats become irrelevant and animals appear in alien settings where they nevertheless blend in comfortably. Taken in zoos and then digitally manipulated, the 46 images in this collection explore the boundaries of photography, highlighting the inherent subjectivity of a documentary medium. The books in this photography series showcase the works of post-World War II masters. Each contains more than 40 duotone or color images, and represents an original approach to a particular theme by one of the century's finest documentary or fine-art photographers. Author Frank Horvat, photog. Danielle Brolli, foreword. Publisher Smithsonian Format hardcover ISBN 1560984430 Pages/Publication Date 58/1998
