Nature Picture Library News


This week sees the UK publication of FLAMINGO by Claudio Contreras Koob and Martha A. Salazar, with the US edition due to follow next week.

Nature Picture Library was delighted to work closely with the authors and publisher teNeues Media to bring this beautiful work to publication. FLAMINGO is a celebration and in-depth study of the Caribbean flamingos of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, which NPL photographer Claudio Contreras Koob has studied since childhood.

To find out more, take a look at our FLAMINGO blog where Claudio talks about some of his favourite images from the project. You will also find full details of the UK and US publications.

And to explore the full range of breathtaking images used in the book, browse our FLAMINGO gallery.
