My idea is to present, through the medium of photography, intuitive observations of the natural world, hopefully in a way which will convey meaning to any and all who see them.
It is one thing to look at a picture. It is another entirely to see something within that image that makes one care about the natural world.
“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs,” Ansel Adams once said. “When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
Africa’s great cats evoke a sense of mystery and awe. They stir long buried memories in the human subconscious. They’re familiar, and yet frightening. They’re critically endangered in these modern times. And yet, by their very presence, they remind us of the origin place, the place where humankind began.
From the future of the planet to our shared memory of the human past, from the origins of humankind to efforts to save endangered species in the here-and-now, our world is constantly changing.
