THIS EMPTY WORLD
The first 7 photographs from Nick Brandt’s much anticipated new body of work: THIS EMPTY WORLD are now available for purchase.
The series addresses the escalating destruction of the natural world at the hands of humans showing a world where overwhelmed by runaway development there is no longer space for animals to survive.
Each image is a combination of two moments in time captured weeks apart almost all from the exact same locked-off camera position. Photographed in Kenya the project is shot mostly at night with constructed sets and an enormous cast. For the very first time Brandt’s new work is in colour and digital medium format.
The full project will comprise of 45 images and will be released in its entirety on 29 January 2019 with a show in partnership with Waddington Custot, London, (7 February – 9 March 2019).
The book will be published by Thames & Hudson in February 2019.
