Inherit the Dust: Photographing ‘the ghosts’ of #animals [#geekgirl]

WASTELAND-WITH-ELEPHANT

British photographer Nick Brandt has been making intimate portraits of East African animals for close to two decades.

In that time, many of the places he works have been transformed by rapid development, and the environmental devastation that often comes with it.

Now, in a new book and series of international exhibitions is called Inherit the Dust, Brandt attempts to show what habitat destruction looks like by placing giant portraits of animals in landscapes where they used to roam.
