Nick Brandt: Across the Ravaged Land
ATLAS Gallery is pleased to announce the much-anticipated UK launch of the third and final part of Nick Brandt’s evocative photographic trilogy. Across The Ravaged Land completes the sentence initiated by the first two published bodies of work – ‘On This Earth’ and ‘A Shadow Falls’ – which chart the changes and challenges effecting the natural landscapes and native wildlife of East Africa.
Featuring once again the vast animal portraits that Brandt is celebrated for, a much more sombre vision of East Africa is portrayed in Across The Ravaged Land. Whilst the landscapes retain the intense beauty of Brandt’s earlier works, and the animals in all their majesty continue to resonate with human sentiment, there is a sense of tragedy and destruction in many of the images.
