Across the Ravaged Land is the third and final volume in Nick
Brandt’s trilogy of books documenting the disappearing animals of
eastern Africa. The book offers a darker vision of this world, still
filled with a stunning beauty but now tragically tainted and fast
disappearing at the hands of man.
In addition to a range of starkly
powerful animal portraits, Brandt introduces some new themes, as humans
make an appearance for the first time. He also contributes two essays
summing up his photographic odyssey, which has taken more than a decade
of intensive work to complete.
