After weeks and weeks of PF-themed giveaways I figured it was time for a change. That’s why this week’s prize is a gorgeous coffee-table book full of slavering bruins.
“Shooting Bears: The Adventures of a Wildlife Photographer” chronicles in words and photos — lots of photos — the life and work of the late John Pezzenti Jr.
Pezzenti spent three decades taking pictures of polar, black and grizzly bears, mostly in Alaska. For a glimpse of some of the pictures, click on the link above.
While I have issues with the way Pezzenti worked — he got way too close to the animals, a technique that can help acclimate bears to humans — I cannot deny that his images are stunning.
