About the Book:
An Ideal Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Gift!
The definitive book on the giants of the animal kingdom: two photographers share what moves them when they come face to face with the world’s largest animals, and allow us to experience their encounters in this spectacular wildlife photography book- Amos Nachoum and Marko Dimitrijevic use human emotions like amazement, awe and excitement to portray the world’s biggest animals and take us along on a moving journey around the world- The debut of an award-winning work of a lifetime: The first book of wildlife photography by acclaimed photographers and friends Amos Nachoum and Marko Dimitrijevic contains both prize-winning photographs and photographs that have never been seen before.
When we encounter an animal in nature, it triggers something in us; we feel a certain emotion in the presence of the other creature: amazement, adoration, fascination, and indeed, in some situations, fear and apprehension. But a brush with a deer, wild boar, or hare is no comparison to a rendezvous with a grizzly, lion, shark, or pod of whales. Amos Nachoum and Marko Dimitrijevic have experienced this hundreds of times in their combined 70 years as wildlife photographers. Now, for the first time, they are combining their award-winning photographs with previously unpublished photographs of the world’s largest animals in one book. The two photographers, who are also friends, tell us what it is like to be out in the wild and look the world’s biggest animals right in the eye.The structure of the book’s chapters is arranged based on human emotions such as amazement, admiration, fear, and love. In their book, Nachoum and Dimitrijevic bring us closer to the giant animals of our planet, and allow us to share what these two men feel during these encounters, helping us learn about ourselves when we do so.

Gift ideas for the readers in your life: … “Big,” by Marko Dimitrijevic and Amos Nachoum, took my breath away. Published by teNeues, this oversize album contains the most amazing, close-up photographs of whales, sharks, elephants, bears, tigers, apes and other “big” animals. Just glance at a few pages and you will be awestruck by the beauty and elegance, the sheer magnificence of these creatures.”
The Washington Post The Illustrated Books of the Year (2022): “At more than a foot long and nearly as wide, this is not one to be read idly on public transport or without some hefty lifting equipment, but the animals, none small, are not stinted by the book’s outlandish proportions. Dimitrijevic and Nachoum, wildlife photographers with 70 years’ experience between them, have pooled their portfolios and produced a book of rare wonder. “ The Daily Mail (UK) & MailOnline
