Born in London and now living in the US, Nick Brandt is easily one of our most remarkable and collected modern day photographers.
After directing Michael Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’ video in Kenya and Tanzania, Brandt was compelled to present a complex and deep portrait of African wildlife. A mix of awe, beauty and sympathy, his large scale soft-sepia photographs show the grandness of the wild combined with personal humility. Once you see one you immediately feel an empathy with the animal - the true owners of the African wild.
In all, Brandt’s almost intimate relationship with his subject matter is overwhelming. It almost feels like Brandt has asked them to sit for the photos as if in a private portrait session.
