Andrew Zuckerman was born in Washington, DC in 1977. After an internship at The International Center of Photography in New York, he attended the School of Visual Arts to study photography and film, where he graduated in 1999. His work has been commissioned extensively for many leading international brands and has received many awards, including D&AD, One Show, BDA, and multiple annuals. His first film, High Falls, premiered at The Sundance Film Festival in 2007 before going on to win for best short narrative at the Woodstock Film Festival. He has published three photography books. CREATURE, a portrait series of animals, was released worldwide in November 2007 to critical acclaim and is now in its fourth printing. WISDOM, a book, film, and traveling exhibition released in October 2008, is an ongoing project made with the support of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Andrew traveled the globe to photograph and interview the world's most eminent elders, from Judi Dench to Nelson Mandela, creating a comprehensive account of their perspectives on life. His latest book, BIRD, is a visual study of birds from the rarest to the most common and will be available in October 2009. In 2006 Andrew co-founded Late Night and Weekends, a company that produces advertising, films, books, and online content.

It's not easy to do genuinely original work is a field already so saturated. This man has done it.
The photography is superb; incredible detail, color, interesting compositions. Even though the photographs are on a completely white background they have a crispness, and vibrance due to the careful lighting.
The page design is excellent, wonderful contrast of sizes, shapes, color and great use of the white space.
Oh, and the birds? Beautiful. A reminder of how amazing natural creatures are, how detailed the plumage, the delicacy of color, the silkiness of black feathered birds, and then the quirky details of theirs beaks, claws or other amazing details the photographer has picked out to show us.
A very impressive project, beautifully executed.
