    Maasai Mara Kenya 2014
    An open edition in all sizes

    If anything could symbolise the plight of Africa's wildlife against humankind it might be the late Karanja, reputedly the owner of Africa's longest rhino horn at 34 inches. Karanja pulled in many times more revenue than a trophy hunter could ever pay for, and he also reminded us what could have been and what still should be, that these horns were once commonplace.

    Nobody who ever saw Karanja will ever forget him. I particularly remember my own first encounter with him, which was of disbelief. I was not able to secure a picture that day, but in the few years hence, he was kind to me. Karanja was rare in today's age, 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.

    I made this print in December 2014 to remember Karanja by. It's an open edition and not limited so it will always be available.
