Synopsis: A tribute to the mighty bison, one time king of the prairies Reduced to under 1,000 head by 1890, the bison - now properly protected - number around 80,000 and live exclusively in parks and reserves Fitzgerald's powerful photographs are a tribute to the animal that, some 30 million years ago, formed the biggest mass of large animals ever to tread the globe. With their massive head and forequarters covered in long, dark brown woolly hair, short neck, and high humped shoulders, the bison is unmistakable. Mobile, highly curious and with well-developed hearing, they make an excellent 'target' for the wildlife photographer. David Fitzgerald captures the lifecycle of the bison in a series of forceful colour photographs all vividly brought to life by Linda Hasselstrom's compelling narrative.
