Title: Closer Than Close

Location: Erindi, Namibia, 2018

 

Closer, but far, still.

Movements less, greater will.

Shuttered eyes, a lesser gaze.

She knows the lesson, she knows the way.

 

This is Savanna. 

Over the past few years, I’ve spent countless hours with wild Cheetah at Erindi. Tracking on foot, witnessing the gentleness of a mother as her cubs feed on milk, the excitement of a hunt, tense encounters of Cheetah with other big cats, and the countless other often unpredictable behaviors that distinguish Cheetahs.

I’ve also witnessed firsthand the reality of their demise across Africa.

Cheetahs are threatened by a multitude of factors. Population fragmentation, illicit pet trade, persecution by farmers protecting their livestock. And there are few safe places left for respite from such pressures. Coupled with a naturally high cub mortality rate, it’s been difficult for Cheetahs to gain traction at this critical juncture for the future of their species.

Though, Savanna has been a light of hope. She’s shown us that we can win this battle to save the Cheetah. 

If you've been following along with Erindi and the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) over the past few years, you've seen the successes of the collaboration between Erindi and CCF. Rewilding Cheetah to a protected Nature Reserve has proven to be a crucial advancement in the reprise of Cheetah populations. Savanna in particular is a direct result of this rewilding program. Born in the wild to a Cheetah that was re-introduced into Erindi, she's now had multiple litters of cubs that have the potential to further bolster Cheetah populations. And she's not the only success. There's been many more at Erindi with the help of CCF. 

As long as we allow Cheetah places to be wild, they can thrive.

What are people saying about my prints?

Wilder, Twinning, & Motherhood
The stories and mission you share makes these prints even more special than just a beautiful photograph. These photographs bring to life memories, experiences, and dreams that we look forward to telling our children about!

Emily, USA

To me your photos are like a very tasteful crossing between a photograph and a painting. And the fact that the animals are portrait as serious as I'm used to see a human portrait being done but without losing the wilderness layer.

ONLINE vs. OFFLINE

I’ve been selling my prints offline in galleries, exhibitions, and world-renowned art shows to private collectors for years. You'll notice based on the color guide that many of the artworks already have a history of sales. This is the first time I’ve ever offered them to an online audience. Now that I'm selling online, I can offer a much greater selection at standard sizes at even more accessible prices. More below about sizes.
