Nick Brandt's portfolio African Elegy Vol. 1. 2000--2003
"Very few photographers have ever really considered the photography of wildlife, as distinctly opposed to the genre of Wildlife Photography, as an art form. The emphasis has generally been on capturing the drama of wild animals IN ACTION, or capturing that dramatic single MOMENT, as opposed to simply animals in the state of BEING."—Nick Brandt

"Nick Brandt's photographs of African animals and landscapes are both epic and iconic. It's a vision of Africa that we have not seen before."—Mary Ellen Mark
