Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same. But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths? Could it be because Africa is the place of all our beginnings, the cradle of mankind, where our species first stood upright on the savannahs of long ago? Brian Jackman
I had a trip to East Africa was in March 2020. Due to Covid-19 I was forced to evacuate after 12 days. I visited the game parks. I photographed the animals, the people and the places. The scenery was magnificent.
In the words of Karen Blixen, "Men go off to be tested for courage and if we're tested at all, it's for patience, for doing without, for how well we can endure loneliness. I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills. Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist: Give me a chance to do my best."
As a nature and wildlife photographer you go off on safari to do your best to capture the truth of it.
