Wasteland with Elephant 2015
Since 2001, fine art photographer Nick Brandt has been documenting the vanishing natural world and animals of East Africa through his evocative, soulful portraits of elephants, giraffes, lions, gorillas, hippos, zebras and other large mammals.
Three years after the somber conclusion of his African trilogy, On This Earth (2005), A Shadow Falls (2009), Across the Ravaged Land (2013), Brandt returned to East Africa to create a bold new series comprised of epic, visually complex panoramas that are a haunting warning about what will happen if the escalating devastation of Africa’s natural world and its unique large animals continues at the current alarming rate.
The panoramas will be published for the first time in a stunning over-sized volume entitled Inherit The Dust (Edynn Houk Editions/D.A.P.) that will be unveiled in March 2016 coinciding with exhibitions of the work in New York, Los Angeles, London, Stockholm and Berlin.
