About Bruce Colin

'Time spent in the wild reveals many stories, unravels many secrets, and like the first artists who drew bison and mammoths on cave walls, the nature photographer continues as a scribe and brings to light the joy and beauty of biodiversity and the painful recognition that our planet, its creatures and its wild untamed realms are fragile and constantly under siege.' Quote: Bruce Colin
