One cannot return from an African safari unaffected. Lions,proud and free,prowl your memory. Great herds of grazing zebra and wildebeest wander across the horizon of your mind's eye. Parades of elephants leave imprints of awesome power and size while stirring your heart with their gentle nurturing behaviors.
These images are a testament to what we may one day lose.
While the images in this collection are true "in the wild" photographic captures of the subjects,my creative process has focused on such qualities as color,tone,texture,pattern and form. the result is designed to convey the animals's essential being, that impacts and evokes a response from the viewer .
