Maasai Mara Kenya 2014
An edition of 25 in all sizes
If anything might symbolise the plight of Africa's wildlife against humankind it might be the black rhinoceros, of which no more than 5600 remain in all Africa.
Rhinoceros is one of the original big five, the hunters' five animals considered to be the hardest to take down. Today their threat comes from their own horns, from the false narrative of the so called healing that they provide.
In this picture, the huge however vulnerable rhinoceros is dwarfed by a vast sky, spearing it cleanly with its horns, those very horns that presage his downfall. The reality is that their horns are of no use to us whatsoever, but to the rhinoceros they are everything.
The owner of these horns was Karanja. He was rare in today's age, but under the eye of the park's rangers he lived life to the fullest, dying of natural causes in 2014 at the age of 42.
