Photographer Nick Brandthas documented the extraordinary wildlife of Africa and its unfortunate decimation. His latest set of images include portraits of poachers, hauling their inventory of giant ivory tusks, as well as decomposing carcasses of wildlife, including those of flamingos, bats, giraffes, and varied beasts. This is Nick Brandt conserving Africa’s Wildlife through photography.
It isn’t all gut-wrenching photography though. Brandt manages to capture extraordinary visuals of these animals from a rare, intimate perspective. There’s a book containing 90 of the images from 2001-2008 entitled On This Earth, A Shadow Falls that can be purchased directly from Photo-eye. Enjoy a taste of this talented man’s vision at Conserving Africa’s Wildlife Through Photography.
