Lewa, Kenya 2013

 

In my time at the Lewa Conservancy in Kenya, I principally focused on
photographing the white and black rhinos for which the reserve is famous.
Telephoto shots of static rhinos are hardly ground-breaking and my goal was to
work with remotes in the hope of capturing a rhino charging towards the
camera in its casing. There should be menacing proximity. However this
approach did present some practical challenges – the grass is quite long in
Lewa and therefore the ground level camera’s view can often be obscured and
why also should a rhino run towards a steel box? After many failures we got
there in the end – the key decision being to cover the camera in the rhino’s own
defecation – they like their own smell.
I feel comfortable in my assertion that this angle of view makes the image fairly
unique. It is a high-impact photograph of a magnificent and gravely endangered
animal.
