ENDANGERED began 25 years ago with the goal of photographing endangered species in their natural environment. It was and is the search for the one image that says it all.
At the heart of ENANGERED are intense photographs, taken face to face at close range and in the wild. They were created in rare moments of encounters between humans and animals on around 10 photo expeditions over the past 30 years. All shots were taken in 1:1 situations with wild, untamed animals without any cloaking device, pole cam, remote shutter release or drones. The great white shark images were taken from inside a shark cage. Film and digital cameras with focal lengths between 16mm and 200mm were used.
Fine art prints available soon
