Seeking to capture animal
beauty, YellowKorner’s artists are presenting a collection of photographs of elephants. Wild, natural, and compelling, wildlife photography differs from traditional photography in that its subjects are never predictable, and are capricious at times.
The practice of wildlife photography emerged in the early 1890s. The earliest photographers, silent and enthralled, explored cliffs, forests, ponds, parks, and prairies, with equal parts patience and discretion.
Over the years, improvements in equipment made for sharper shots. The first animals caught on human-made lenses were those found easily in Europe and the United States. Deer, hares, birds, and horses were among the animals initially appearing in these photographs, shot in colour or black and white, at night and in daylight.
Gradually, the desire for exotic settings and magnificent wild animals attracted artists. Long fascinated by Africa
, Laurent Baheux
travelled around Tanzania seeking out this majestic fauna
. His photographs, mainly in black and white
, feature the fauna
of the desert
– strikingly poetic images of elephants or lion
cubs cuddling. He captures unique scenes, providing glimpses of stirring moments.
The famous Brazilian photographer Jackson Carvalho
is another such modern wildlife photographer. He spectacularly captures elephants in the desert sunset. His poetic, delicately luminous photographs of these pachyderms will bring a delightful presence to your living areas. With their wildlife
photographs, YellowKorner’s artists are striving to share their vision and emotions upon contact with wild animals.
