‘Being able to spend time, and document some memorable moments where the iconic cats have tolerated our intrusion, has been a great privilege. The wild kingdom unravels its secrets slowly and not always generously,’ aver wildlife aficionados Babi and Tina Nobis, who, for nearly three decades, have been on several safaris into the wilderness of India, Africa, and Sri Lanka. While Babi has frequently trained his lenses on the majestic animals that fight for domination and dominion in these raw and untamed habitats, Tina has captured them in their most candid moments through her video-camera, while also maintaining a regular journal of these memorable journeys and encounters on the edge. Great Wild Cats – Born To Be a stunning visual and written record of the great cats that live by the laws of the jungle. A companion volume to Babi and Tina’s first grand pictorial On Safari – The Tiger and The Baobab Tree, it reaffirms the authors’ deep passion and commitment to the preservation of wildlife, particularly the great cats. Replete with technically and aesthetically brilliant photographs that present a strong visual narrative, this ‘docu- drama’ is aptly rounded off by Tina’s crisp, engaging writing and video clips, all of which maintain the tempo of a cliffhanger. A must-have.

 

About the Author

Babi Nobis has explored the incredible wilderness of both the Indian and African wildlife reserves. His passion for wildlife is showcased in his first pictorial, On Safari – The Tiger and The Baobab Tree. His photograph, ‘Leopard With a Kill’ taken in the Masai Mara, was part of the entry which won India the gold medal in the FIAP (Fe de ration Internationale de l’Art Photographique) World Cup 2010, and Babi the individual World Cup silver medal. He has held solo exhibitions of his photographs in Stockholm, Gothenburg, and at the Kolmarden Wildlife Park, Sweden. He is a founder member of WPSI (Wildlife Protection Society of India). Great Wild Cats – Born To Be Free is a collection of his photographs of tigers, lions, and leopards clicked in India, Africa, and Sri Lanka. These images are dynamic, evocative and forge an emotional bond with the viewer. Tina Nobis is a textile designer and ceramic sculptor. She has travelled extensively with her husband Babi to wildlife areas around the world. She shares his passion for the great cats and is a keen wildlife video photographer herself. While she definitely believes that the photographs in this book tell their own story, the notes in her diary make for the comprehensive writing in the book as do the breathtaking videos the book frequently leads us to.
