Photographer Nick Brandt was born in 1966 and raised in England. He studied Painting and Film before he moved to America in the early 1990s to direct many award-winning videos. In 2000, Nick Brandt embarked upon his ambitious photographic project: a trilogy of works to memorialize the vanishing natural grandeur of East Africa. What makes his work unique is the fact that his work is a combination of epic panoramas of animals within dramatic landscapes, and graphic portraits more akin to studio portraiture of human subjects from the early 20th century – as if these animals were already long dead, from a bygone era. These iconic portraits of its majestic animals are filled with an empathy usually reserved for human subjects. Notably, Nick Brandt photographs on medium-format black and white film without telephoto or zoom lenses. In 2016 he released his latest series »Inherit the Dust«.
After his first exhibition at CAMERA WORK gallery in 2005, Nick Brandt went on to have multiple solo exhibitions worldwide, including in New York, Los Angeles, London, Sydney, Munich, Brussels, and Paris. His first large solo museum exhibition was shown by FOTOGRAFISKA in Stockholm in 2011. In September 2010, in urgent response to the escalation of poaching in Africa due to increased demand from the Far East, Nick Brandt founded the non-profit organization »Big Life Foundation«, dedicated to the conservation of Africa's wildlife and ecosystems.
