There is a feeling of wonder that comes when your jeep turns the corner and you are confronted by a herd of rhinos, wildebeest, elephants or other big game in an African wildlife park. There is also an uneasy sense that you are an uninvited guest in their home.
This series presents images from South Africa shot in early 2018. It starts in the beach resort of Umhlanga and then in the heart of Durban. In the former, fancy restaurants have wild meats on their menu, while in the later, traders in the central market sell skins and potions made from wild animals.
The wildlife images were shot in the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Park, which is the oldest wildlife reserve in Africa. The Park has 96,000 hectares of wilderness, rolling hills and magnificent wildlife. Pop-art images are also included to show how sightings of these magnificent creatures seem to have become souvenirs of global travelers.
