For a long time, the life of animals
in a wild state was studied in depth. Beyond science and humanity’s insatiable desire to want to understand wild animals, another technique has allowed us to discover their beauty. The starring role at the YellowKorner photography gallery is now held by the elephant. Majestic, powerful, and noble, this animal is endlessly fascinating. Under the gaze exercised by the best of photographers, we discover stunning black-and-white
Wildlife photography effectively represents for many artist-photographers the best way of paying tribute to this animal. A way of recognising both its power, and paradoxically, its fragility. Living in herds, we often see them in good company. An elephant family is virtually a family tree in which we can glimpse a member from each generation.
For Pedro Jarque Krebs
, having a lens trained constantly on the animal is a technique requiring boldness and great caution. It is absolutely crucial to avoid disturbing the peaceful lives of these giants while also being capable of photographing them. His travels have enabled him to enhance his collection, now available at YellowKorner.
As for Nicolas Evariste
, he proves that with one step from this animal, anything could be reduced to crumbs. And for the I’m Not a Trophy
project by photographer Arno Elias
confirms this. His technique: combining body painting with illustrations staging the majestic animals, all of which is photographed “by the book”.
Concerning the black-and-white photos of elephants taken by Laurent Baheux
, the goal is to find the right moment and angle for each shot. Naturally, all of this requires patience: a virtue that is inseparable from wildlife photography when a photographer wishes to ardently experience a passion as all-encompassing as this.
With so many choices at your fingertips, it is easy to be seduced by the most exotic photographs of these animals, bringing an escapist element to your interior.
See you soon at YellowKorner!
