Nick Brandt has made it his life’s work to document Africa’s diminishing edens in an attempt to raise awareness about the environmental destruction taking place at the hands of man. Photographing almost exclusively in monochromatic hues, Nick’s photographs capture the regal beauty of Africa’s wildlife in a way that few others are capable of doing. Brandt’s shots are emotionally stirring and transcend the boundaries of one’s own personal affiliation with Africa, replacing it instead with universal awe and admiration of the natural world’s unrivalled beauty.
“I want my images to achieve two things in this regard - to be an elegy to a world that is tragically vanishing, to make people see what beauty is disappearing. Also, to try and show that animals are sentient creatures equally as worthy of life as humans.”
