In his own words, photographer Nick Brandt aims to “yank the subject matter of wildlife into the arena of fine art photography”. A Shadow Falls is the second collection of his works, and the much-anticipated follow-up to On This Earth.
The exhibition consists of a total of 54 recent images captured on oversized tritone plates. His panoramic images of animals and landscapes are part of an ongoing project to memorialise the vanishing natural grandeur of East Africa.
The exhibition is the second in a planned trilogy that together will form a message. So far they read; "On This Earth", "A Shadow Falls". Only time will tell how it ends. Hannah Berry
A Shadow Falls is on at the Air Gallery, London, from 8 September to 3 October.
