When I was asked to review Remembering Cheetahs, I jumped at the chance, and I am so glad I did. This review is a little different to my usual reviews, as there are minimal words… the photographs themselves tell a story.
Each photographer brings a unique personality to the cheetahs; their home, their daily routine, the hunt, their cubs, old life, new life. It’s like I was just a touch away from these amazing creatures.
This stunning photography book is full of incredible images leaving you in awe, and what’s more, is that by purchasing this book, you are also donating to charity.
A little bit about the book:
“Remembering Cheetahs will be the fifth book in the highly acclaimed Remembering Wildlife series of charity books and will feature a foreword by Professor Laurie Marker and afterword by TV presenter Gordon Buchanan MBE. The book is full of beautiful images donated by more than 70 of the world’s top wildlife photographers including Greg du Toit, Marsel van Oosten, Frans Lanting, Art Wolfe and Jonathan & Angela Scott, with an aim to raise awareness of the plight facing cheetahs and also to raise funds to protect them.”
This information and more can be found on the Remembering Cheetahs Website.
Some of my favourite photographs from the book:

I really loved this photograph because of how calm the cheetah looks among the flowers. What Dee Roelofsz manages to do is create a contrasting view of the cheetah in this beautiful photo.
Photo by Marcus Westberg A cheetah grooms her young cubs
This by far is one of my favourite photographs. I love that the photographer, Marcus Westberg, managed to capture the exact moment the mother cheetah was grooming her cubs. Absolutely stunning.

This photo by Francesco Veronesi looks like its literally coming alive. This fantastic photo really brings into perspective the collation of cheetahs as a family. there are cubs playing, the adult keeping watch, and all in front of the sun. Incredible!
