Painted Cats, Tabu Lovers, Wildlife Photographer Award

Canadians Craig Nicholson and Gary Alderson have been pushing the boundaries of the wildlife photography genre for a decade. The two live in Nova Scotia, where they’ve been trekking in the wild for a decade to turn encounters with indigenous animals into stunningly beautiful images that look like they were captured on film. The duo is now out on the open road with their new anthology, Cats at Play: A Journal of Wildlife Photography. Take a look at some of the photographs featured in the book that are meant to reveal the wonders of animals in their natural habitat. Cats are the chosen animal for the couple because of the way cats help introduce us to the world we live in as humans, said the Daily Dot.
