Books > Photographers' Books > Animal Architecture by Ingo Arndt (83) More files...
For a period of two years, Ingo Arndt travelled the globe to capture images of animal architecture, from the six-foot-high hills of tiny red ants in their native forests to the colourfully decorated courtship arenas of bowerbirds in West Papua. These and other constructions, with their unusual architecture and fascinating aesthetics, are the focus of Arndt's photographs, complemented by highly detailed studio work and showcased in a new book with text by Juergen Tautz and design by Ingo's wife Silke Arndt. The English language edition is published by Abrams, the German language edition by Knesebeck in assocation with GEO, and there is also now a Japanese edition published by Space Shower Books.
