hall of giants

These unique and partly irretrievable close-ups have been created in the last 12 years. All of them from very close proximity without remote or telelenses. All of them were breathtaking encounters that I will never forget. Tim and Primo – two of the last big tuskers at Amboseli I photographed for the last time in 2019. Both unfortunately passed away during the last months due to natural causes.

I see THESE photos of the elephants as portraits of individuals who are our equals—far removed from spectacular wildlife photography. What interests me is what lies beneath the surface, out of sight, the quiet yet intense encounters.
