About the Author

Nick Brandt's photography focuses exclusively on the disappearing natural world. Exhibitions of his work have been seen in museums and galleries across the world.


Brandt's introductory essay describes his 'outrage overload' and his passion for making a difference. The 70 large plates are magnificently printed and give us a strong sense of the majesty of the animals as well as some of the human pressures. This is where the very large format of this photobook really shines (it would be a notable addition to anyone's coffee table).
Epic and cinematic.--Colin Gleadell
This Empty World showcases stunning scenes of animals and humans trying to live side by side in a rapidly developing environment...A stunning cinematic quality...
Harrowing and deeply moving.
This Empty World dazzles with its imposing scale, colorful detail, and technical arresting body of work.
Technical and emotional marvels.
Splendid...hugely dramatic and emotional mise-en-scenes.
This Empty World is a captivating account of wildlife colliding hard against an endless tide of human encroachment. Brandt's masterpiece images reflect the ambivalence of a world looking away from its own shadows. The images are monumental achievements.
This Empty World is a blazoning exploration of the vulnerability of animals and humans in an era of environmental degradation. Brandt's vision communicates the urgency of environmental issues with undiluted conviction. The works' impact, immediate and direct, is informed by a painstakingly deliberate and nuanced process. Brandt's finished works...of the wild animals and the human-inhabited sets, create startling scenes of the two worlds in direct dialogue.
