About the artwork

The rhinoceros is one the most threatened animals in Africa. The chances of being able to observe a rhinoceros in its natural habitat are therefore rare, and the opportunities to photograph them even rarer. One winter morning in South Africa, sitting in the back of a Land Cruiser with the top open, an icy wind froze Marie Frankel’s fingers. Visiting a wildlife park, the photographer waited patiently… When suddenly, it appeared before her eyes. Incredulity and wonder must soon give way to fast reflexes if she were to succeed in photographing this animal, as powerful as it is vulnerable.
