There is perhaps something more profoundly iconic, mythological even, about the animals of East Africa, as opposed to say, the Arctic or South America). And there is also something incredibly emotionally stirring about the plains of Africa – the vast green rolling plains punctuated by absurdly, perfectly graphic acacia trees. My images are my elegy to a world that is steadily, tragically vanishing. –Nick Brandt
