The Strand presents Nick Brandt on 'Inherit the Dust'

"Quarry with Lion" (2014)

Since 2001, fine art photographer Nick Brandt has been documenting the vanishing natural world and animals of East Africa through his haunting, majestic portraits of elephants, giraffes, lions, gorillas, rhinos, and other large mammals, previously published in On This Earth, A Shadow Falls.

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 his stunning but harrowing new body of work, Inherit the Dust (2016), in which he documents the continent's escalating environmental crisis. In a series of epic panoramas, Brandt records the impact of man in places where animals used to roam, but no longer do. In each location, he erects a life size panel of one of his animal portraits, setting the panels within a world of explosive urban development and toxic wasteland where the animals are now ghosts in their former habitats.
