GALÁPAGOS

Life & Evolution

 

In November 2018 Anamaria presented her last photographic book "Galápagos Life & Evolution" with a foreword of Philippe Cousteau and Ashlan Gorse Cousteau, in which they highlight: "As you dive into this glorious book by Anamaria Chediak and begin absorbing her breathtaking images you begin to understand what Darwin found so magical about this place. Flipping through the pages is like going on a virtual tour; you can almost feel the sun on your face, hear the sea lions bark or the sound of iguanas running across the rocks. And you get a sense of the tremendous spirit of the creatures that inhabit the Islands. Their undeniable personalities will leave you feeling hopeful about our beautiful planet and committed to making sure it thrives".

Africa

 

In September 2010, she presented "AFRICA", transporting us to the savage surroundings of Botswana, Namibia and South Africa to share moments of wildlife in its purest form and the intimacies of one of the ancient local tribes.

Yolanda Kakabadse, President, WWF International, said regarded to her book "Africa": "What set this book apart for me was the combination of portraiture alongside the wildlife photography. Here we see a vision of Africa that is more than a landscape - it's a home. A place where, for millenia, families have lived alongside their wild neighbors. Their lives are tied to the land in ways that many of us can only imagine. And in their faces Anamaria Chediak shows us both the struggle and hope of a continent".

In May 2012 Africa received the Bronce Award at Sappi Printers of the Year.

Bloom

 

In September 2008, she released "BLOOM", a delightful photographic collection that captures the intense colors, the diverse textures and exotic shapes of the finest flowers from Ecuador.

“What set this book apart for me was the combination of portraiture alongside the wildlife photography. Here we see a vision of Africa that is more than a landscape – it´s a home. A place where, for millennia, families have lived alongside their wild neighbors. Their lives are tied to the land in ways that many of us can only imagine. And in their faces Anamaria Chediak shows us both the struggle and hope of a continent” said regarded to her book “Africa”.

 

Yolanda Kakabadse

President, WWF International

“With the passion of an alchemist, Anamaria Chediak takes the resources of photography to the limit and incorporates mystery into her work. Anamaria's alchemy harks back to those who seek the philosopher's stone and reveals new horizons that are increasingly profound and mysterious”.
