THE BIG FIVE COLLECTION

The Elephant, Black Rhino, Cape Buffalo, African Lion and Leopard are often called "The Big Five”, a term coined by early European big game hunters and refers to the five most dangerous animals to hunt on foot in Africa. Today they are known as the most popular of the big game animals and a must see for any safari travelers.

In my depiction of the Big Five I decided to give the viewers an up-close and personal look into the eyes of these mighty beasts. Keeping the composition simplified and focused on the character of each animal, and minimizing the background and palette to a sepia and ochre color (like an old antique photograph) creates a compelling interplay of lost and found areas, letting the viewer come face to face with the heart of the Beasts.
