“What I am interested in is showing the animals simply in the state of being. In the state of being before they are ‘no longer are.’ Before, in the wild at least, they cease to exist. This world is under terrible threat, all of it caused by us. To me, every creature, human or nonhuman, has an equal right to live, and this feeling, this belief that every animal and I are equal, affects me every time I frame an animal in my camera. The photos are my elegy to these beautiful creatures, to this wrenchingly beautiful world that is steadily, tragically, vanishing before our eyes.” – Nick Brandt

Love the majestic beauty of one of the largest living creatures on this planet.  Hate the tragedy...suffered by this majestic animal at the hands of greedy poachers.

Kudos to Nick Brandt for establishing the Big Life Foundation to enforce anti-poaching laws.
