“On the road to elephants” has been published! Listen to the clip above to hear more about what’s inside. While the book is making its way into online retail stores, worldwide, you can also order the book directly from me:
‘On the Road to Elephants’ is a soft-cover photography book with a written essay. Inside its pages, you’ll find lots of delightful elephant pictures. Although this isn’t really a ‘traditional’ wildlife ‘coffee-table’ book; it’s more of an essay about elephants, and more.
I explore, with my camera – from my rather small car – how elephants live in modern day (South) Africa. It’s a mixture of photo book, personal travel experiences and informal guide book. And, beyond the fun pictures and travel anecdotes, it’s also a more serious journalistic document about South Africa, and an exploration into our relationship, as humans, with elephants in a historical context.
Elephants are a keystone species in Africa, which means that the rest of the ecosystem, including other wildlife, depend on their survival. The issues affecting elephant populations vary from region to region in Africa. That’s why I focus on South Africa, on its own, and in context of what’s happening on the continent.
