    (amazing photography) BBC Human Planet photographer's shots

    First of all thanks to reddit for finding this. I was gonna put it in the cheer me up thread cause stuff like this is there, but it was a link and i think that thread is more for scrolling and looking than clicking links.

    Anyway, i found this photography to be amazing, inspiring, etc. It's in video form but is basically a slideshow with the artist who took the shots, explaining how he did so, and saying what he loves about what he does. Very much worth checking out in my opinion:

    Audio slideshow: Human Planet:

    (this is one of the pictures from the slideshow, apparently the men photographed below hunt with eagles...)

    These are beautiful images and great commentary on how he took the shots. My fav are the eagle pics, the houses on stilts, and the very last one.

    never heard of this, I always thought a Planet Earth type show with primitive people would be cool. I'll check it out. I loved the pictures

    Wow, that's just amazing! Even if I will keep all the photos for reference, this slideshow needs to be seen at least one time. Music, sounds and commentary makes you travel with the photographer.

    Actually, there is a direct link for every photos from this slideshow since they are not embedded in swf file.

    So much beauty in the world. So much to paint. I daydream about travelling around the globe and painting people, sort of like the orientalists, but with the whole world. Amazing stuff, thank you, Zealot!
