Joel Sartore

I’ve been seeing a lot of beautiful animal images recently, and it’s amazing how many of them come from the camera of a single photographer: Joel Sartore. From studio portraits of monkeys to documentary images like this one—which shows a wildlife overpass spanning an interstate near Banff National Park—from his Fragile Nature series, I keep gasping at the gorgeous photographs this man keeps making. (Even more, I’m incredibly envious of his aesthetic and technical skills, as well as his artistic vision and drive, too.) So if you’re not familiar with his very fine photography, visit his web site at While there you can order prints of this and many of his wonderful images, or purchase Sartore’s most recent books, Rare and Let’s Be Reasonable.
