A follow-up to his incredibly successful previous project, Tigers: A Celebration of Life, Gorillas: Living on the Edge is full of vivid portraits of episodes in the gorillas’ daily lives. Rouse demonstrates his superb “knack for capturing this great ape doing interesting things”, picking up an extraordinary range of facial expressions and intimate and entertaining moments. As 25% of the profits of Tigers went to tiger conservation projects, so 25% of the profits of Gorillas will go to conservation projects in Rwanda, supporting their continued protection of this characterful ape in its last stronghold.
