Nick Brandt has been photographing East Africa’s landscapes, people and animals since early 2000, but this latest series of work, Across the Ravaged Land is darker and more haunting than his previous series alluding to the increased difficulty in creating his work. His photographs stand as a tribute to the elysian natural world of the region which are disappearing as industrialization and population consume the land. Calcified animals, expansive droughts, and poached animal parts evoke the sense of staggering loss and foreboding in the region that Brandt holds close to his heart.
