Big Cats

Steve Winter

From the mountaintops of the Himalayas, through India’s jungles and grasslands, back to the Rockies of the American West and down to South America’s Amazonian rivers, Steve Winter’s “Big Cats” photos reveal some of the world’s most elusive wild cats in their natural habitat. Winter’s mastery of camera traps has allowed him to photograph snow leopards, tigers, cougars, and jaguars like none other, presenting us with diorama-like images of cats that are rarely seen by humans – and may disappear forever without immediate, effective conservation efforts.

Steve Winter’s goal has been to highlight not only the beauty of these cats but to inform us of the threats they face—and the challenges for people who share their realm.
