Burnt Umber Collection - Amboseli Gallery
Limited Edition Prints From Amboseli
From nowhere both the dust devil and the elephant can appear, obscured by their paths as they leave.
The Herd gathers and marches in safety and speed to water. The Dust makes it all the more urgent.
From the foothills of Kilimajaro the lone bull asserts his presence.
The lone Bull will walk and march for days in search of the best females and the best grazing.
As the dust gathers in the distance, from it emerges the herd.
I guess its me and my boy.
The small family groups move to larger herds for longer marches.
The Matriarch leads the herd from water to grazing.
These prints continue and expand on the collection of Fine Art Prints of Elephants of Kenya. They are limited to 3 editioned print sizes, available through local galleries and directly from myself. The images are like the region, varied and with different terrain. The predominant colouring is a Burnt Umber given off by the dust and land. Amboseli is about movement and family. From the large groups that gather to feed and walk to the lone bulls moving around in search of suitable mates. They represent a portrait of a moment in time with these amazing animals. Rarely repeated and a historical record of these beautiful animals within their dimishing world.
The prints were captured in and around the area of Amboseli which is currently in an 18 month drought cycle. The Elephants walk up to 40-50 km per day from the best grazing to the best water. The threat from poaching is constant as they move into community and shared land outside of the reserve.
The region is a mix of dry desert like conditions to a central swamp where many creatures gather, all this under the shadow of Mount Kilimanjario as an icon of Kenya.
