RETURN TO THE WILD
Craig Foster & Ross Frylinck
From the creators of the Academy Award– winning documentary My Octopus Teacher, an immersive journey into the underwater world that inspired it, which holds transformative lessons for us all. Craig Foster and Ross Frylinck regularly dive together in the awe-inspiring kelp forests off South Africa, without wetsuits or oxygen tanks. In Ross, he found a kindred spirit, someone who also embraced the ancient methods of acclimating his body to frigid waters, but whose eyes had not yet adjusted to the transcendent wonder Craig saw each time they dove. In the heart-wrenching stories that make up this unforgettable book, we swim alongside Ross as he grows from skeptic to student of the underwater wild. And in the revelatory marine science behind the stunning photos, we learn how to track sea hares, cuttlefish, and limpets, and witness strange new behaviors never before documented in marine biology. We realize that a whole world of wonder, and an innate wildness within us all, emerge anew when we simply observe.
Open up a world of possibilities
A PHOTOGRAPHIC STORY BOOK
Obie encompasses a decades-long sweep of well-known photographer Obie Oberholzer's life’s work and covers the globe. It is part coffee-table book, part travelogue, part autobiography and part storybook, with a bit of philosophy thrown in for good measure. It’s a great photographer, documenter and character looking back through his ever-increasing archive (built up over 60 years) and choosing the images that resonate the most, and which have a story to tell. Obie captures the rare, the human, the wonderful, the cosmic even. And he doesn’t just take pictures; he also meticulously records it all in words. His descriptions are often as intriguing, as beautiful or as crazy as his photographs.
‘I love your writing as much as your images. You are a poet on the digital keys as much as a poet of light.’
Memory Against Forgetting
Durban-born Ranjith Kally’s award-winning photographic career has spanned more than six decades. Much of his work was published in Drum magazine, where he worked between 1955 and 1985. During this period he documented many of the key figures and events in South Africa’s struggle for democracy. As one of the country’s most prolific photojournalists, his pictures, dating back more than sixty years, provide us with a glimpse into the tensions of the past and the events that shaped our future.

This book showcases the pinnacle of uniquely African architecture and interior design, across Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Zambia, South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. The quintessential guide to lodges in Africa, offering armchair travel like never before to the most spectacular lodges, exquisite landscapes and evocative animals in one collection.
