Peter Ericksen (and his wife who is a major subject of this remarkable photo) are the winners of the ‘Take me there’ competition. They win sole use of one of our new photographic vehicles for seven days on the next safari they book.
This is timely, heart-wrenching and pertinent. It is evocative, upsetting and also important. It is a brilliant photograph: the expression, angle of the subject’s head, concern on her face and her positioning. It looks staged but I know it is not, as the symmetry of her between the graves of the cravenly slaughtered animals is just out, yet still almost brutal in its poignancy.
I NEVER give a nine but feel compelled to here, sadly the horizon running through his wife’s head denies him the perfect score but this is about so much more than photography. I cannot remember ever being so moved by an image, thank you so much for sharing this intimate moment with us.
Peter added this eulogy: “We want to go back to Kicheche and support the local economy and people so that no more rhinos will suffer the fate of Zulu and all the other horned victims subjected to the ravages of poacher’s bullets’.
Soon Peter, soon ….. thank you and well done.
