Madagascar: Land of the Lemurs
by Mitsuaki Iwago
Born in Tokyo in 1950, Iwago’s career as a wildlife photographer was inspired by a visit to the Galapagos Islands at the age of 19. Since then, his field of photographic activity has extended to every continent on the planet. His book of photographs, Serengeti: Natural Order on the African Plain, which was shot in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, Africa during an extended stay that lasted a year and a half, has become a worldwide bestseller.
Inspiring the imagination with its brilliant colors and sharp contrasts, his work has twice graced the cover of National Geographic and his photographs are highly acclaimed all over the world. He uses Olympus digital cameras to take pictures of wildlife, including polar bears in Canada, giant pandas and crested ibis in China, and Steller’s sea eagles and brown bears in Japan. In the summer of 2013, a selection of his work was exhibited at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography – Japan’s largest art museum dedicated to photography.
