Collection: Purchase “Animal Voyage” by Hussain Aga Khan

"Animal Voyage" by Prince Hussain Aga Khan

…For Hussain Aga Khan, each of these photographs [in Animal Voyage] is an appeal to the tenderness of the wilderness that guides his sensitivity, his desire to be one with nature. The animals return his gaze as if in answer to this appeal: they know, they are waiting, they are watching over his love for the world…John W. MacDonald, Ottawa based photographer

  1. This is a beautiful piece of work!!

    The service was excellent. Very quick, safe and efficient turnaround and follow up.

    I recommend everyone to have a copy.

  2. Thank you Simerg; that was a very quick turn-around time after I ordered the book from you just a few days ago. It’s a high-quality paperback book, rectangular in shape with dimensions 11 inches by just over 7 inches and about half inch thick, has 130 pages if you include both covers (which have pictures on all 4 sides). There are 128 amazing pictures in this volume.

    The inside front page has the following message: “In Memory Of Sadri, who worked so hard for environmental protection, animals, and animal rights. He Will Be Sorely Missed.” It continues: “All proceeds of the sale of this book will be distributed to the Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan Fund For The Environment and the Earth Focus Foundation, Switzerland.” The back cover of the book has ” ANIMAL VOYAGE, Travels 1996-2007, Photographs by Hussain Aga Khan”

    Well, I started to leaf through the pages and was mesmerized by all the high quality pictures taken from so many parts of the world. I realised very quickly that the person behind the lens is a maestro and I lost myself in those pictures as I tried to appreciate them. I particularly enjoyed pictures with the personal touch such as:

    1) ”Page 45: Seagull eating our honeymoon breakfast, Heron Island, Great Barrier Reef, Australia.” (The breakfast was a bowl of cereal.)

    2) ”Page 65: My dog Bolivar and friend Zeph, Paris”
    3) ”Page 74: “Broken Bolivar” – my dog wounded, France.” (The poor dog had a cast or bandage around its left hind leg and a large circular plastic collar around its neck to prevent it from biting the bandage off)

    4)”Page 123: Petra and Bolivar, Sardinia”

    This magnificent book of pictures by Prince Hussain Aga Khan captures a multitude of animals, trees, plants, waterfalls, habitats, ecosystems, agricultural settings, monuments and various indigenous peoples. It is a real eye-opener and I highly recommend it. As the author of a Blog on the link between science and religion in Islam, two quotes came to my mind as I went through the book:

    “Muslims believe in an all-encompassing unit of man and nature. To them there is no fundamental division between the spiritual and the material while the whole world, whether it be the earth, sea or air, or the living creatures that inhabit them, is an expression of God’s creation.”
    (Aga Khan IV, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA, 13 April 1984)

    “Islamic doctrine goes further than the other great religions, for it proclaims the presence of the soul, perhaps minute but nevertheless existing in an embryonic state, in all existence in matter, in animals, trees, and space itself. Every individual, every molecule, every atom has its own spiritual relationship with the All-Powerful Soul of God” (Memoirs of Aga Khan III, 1954).

  3. Thank you soo much for the shipment – I received it today! I am impressed at how quickly the transaction went from the time of my order to the delivery. Great job!!

  4. Thank you simerg for processing my order of Animal Voyage by Prince Hussain promptly. The book arrived in time for a gift for my son Bilaal. The book was delivered by Expresspost within 2 days after placing the order in a nice sturdy package. My son was delighted with the excellent photography by Prince Hussain. We as a family will cherish this volume for a long time. Once again, thank you http://www.simerg.com for making this book available in North America and your outstanding customer service and support.

    This really binds our relationship with the nature. By observing nature and its habitat one recalls the Creator and his Creation – this inspire within us an internal echo to look after nature and ensure that it remains protected for a long time.
