A young elephant rests in the Amboseli landscape, a vast region stretching across the border between Kenya and Tanzania. Nick Brandt’s photograph, while capturing a sense of the animal’s sentience and nobility, is freighted with foreboding. Every year, more than 30,000 elephants are slaughtered across Africa, and poaching is rife in the Amboseli area. Brandt is a film director turned fine art photographer who took the photo as part of Across the Ravaged Land, the final part of his trilogy of photographic work from east Africa, published by Abrams Books on October 9. The title completes the sentence formed by two previous books – On This Earth and A Shadow Falls. An exhibition of Across the Ravaged Land will open at London’s Atlas Gallery, Cork Street, on October 21.
Across the Ravaged Land is available to buy through Atlas Gallery.
