Extreme Wildlife Photographer Danté Fenolio Captures 'Life in the Dark'

Published in April by Johns Hopkins University Press, Danté Fenolio’s Life in the Dark: Illuminating Biodiversity in the Shadowy Haunts of Planet Earth reads like an unlikely cross between a deeply informative — yet easily digested — textbook and a slick coffee table book of obscure wildlife photography. Raised among wildlife enthusiasts, Fenolio worked as an amphibian conservation scientist and curator at the Atlanta Botanical Garden before signing on as vice president of conservation and research at the San Antonio Zoo, which helped fund some of the work collected in Life in the Dark.
