Photography by Nick Brandt

Nick Brandt is a photographer who photographs exclusively in Africa, one of his goals being to record a last testament to the wild animals and places there before they are destroyed by the hands of man.

The photograph below is the one that first caught my attention.  A well-crafted and powerful image.  You can feel the desperation and emptiness left by the elephant’s untimely demise in the ranger’s heart.  A moment mirrored by dense low-lying clouds over a vast, barren, landscape.

An abandoned ostrich egg sits alone, forgotten, in a dry wasteland.   A bleak metaphor of the future for Africa’s wildlife without more protection.
