Describe the brief from the client
Design a book that highlights WWF-India’s role in tiger conservation to help the organisation get more funds for the cause.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
To click photographs of tigers and the people who work for their cause in tiger sanctuaries across India. The photographer had to negotiate difficult terrain in dense jungles.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Tiger Talk, WWF-India’s book, looks at tigers through the eyes of the people who truly love them. It photographs characters and their environments, starkly in black and white. They tell the stories in an evocative and memorable manner.
The photographer travelled to tiger reserves across India covering Periyar (Kerala), Mudumalai (Tamil Nadu), Kanha (Madhya Pradesh), Kaziranga (Assam), Corbett (Uttranchal) and Sunderbans (West Bengal), braving difficult terrain, inclement weather and the odd tiger.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The book was launched by Jairam Ramesh, India’s Minister of Environment and Forests at a ceremony that featured many leading public figures.
WWF-India and Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) will use the book to promote the cause by conducting Tiger Talk’s photography exhibitions in places like Addis Ababa, London and Toronto.
This venture will be taken forward by none other than The Prime Minister of India, Dr Manmohan Singh.
