In the press

 “Gilles Martin is one of the most renowned and one of the best French animal photographers. In this imposing, 320-page album, he has brought together his finest bird pictures. His photographer’s eye pushes him to dig out natural beauty and frame it with an acute sense of light. The publishers, Les Éditions de la Martinière, had the good idea of publishing Gilles’ photos in large format. The high-quality printing makes for a grandiose spectacle.”
