Photographer Michael Poliza is set to wow with his new coffee table book “Baby Animals” by Teneues, USD$17.90. This tome of 160 pages shows how the photographer has not only managed to win over the offspring, but their fiercely protective mothers. From lion cubs in Botswana to baby orangutans in Malaysia, Poliza has travelled the world to create the most endearing shots. See a selection below…
