Artist's Description

Over the last few months, I have been unloading boxes of books and was surprised to find my photos from a trip to Africa in the late 1970’s. The photos of two albums of my my trip were still very much intact. Using modern digital tools, the photographs are much improved and reflect my life long interest in photography and my love of animals. I thought I identified myself as an amateur photographer two years ago when I bought my first digital camera. In retrospect, I have chronicled my life and family trips through thousands of images that I never had the motivation or time to explore. I want to share with you my images of these beautiful animals, many taken in Kenya and Serenghetti Park in Tanzania, Africa. Over the years wildlife extinction has increased to the point that many animals are endangered that threatens their extinction as well as ours. I am glad I saw these animals many years ago before humans increased their invasion of animal habitats. This photograph of herds of different species intermingling in peace sets an example for humans to create a world of universal harmony. I doubt you will see a herd of Zebras declaring a war on a family of Wilderbeasts. We are the beasts that have invaded their territory, killing animals for commodities and like the Harry Harlow’s famous Rhesus Monkey experiment torturing them with animal experimentation. Like the two herds in this photo, we must learn to relate in harmony with all of earth’s creatures before it may no longer be an opportunity as more animals are killed and their natural habitats destroyed. Please view this magnifcent landscape in the larger format.
