Lorraine Bennery's latest book is a real magnum opus, the culmination of years of studying and photographing the unique landscapes, animals and plants of Madagascar. The focus of the book, published in French and English by Oiseau Plume Editions, is the fragility of the island's precious ecosystems and the threats to its unique fauna and flora.
