WITNESS is a remarkable collection of photographic portraits of one hundred plants and animals currently on the Endangered Species list of North America. Middleton and Littschwager's images are poignant, and their message simple: this exquisite array of flora and fauna will disappear forever if something isn't done to prevent the destruction of their habitat. These portraits bear testimony to the beauty, diversity, and sacredness of life on this planet with a charismatic directness that is undeniably powerful. Each species portrait also has explanatory text written by the California Academy of Sciences that documents the habits, habitats, and eccentricities of each species. The book also provides resource information for anyone who wants to become more involved with the plight of endangered species. An extraordinary book of truly extraordinary wildlife photography.
