NICK BRANDT

2 March - 23 March

Internationally renowned British artist Nick Brandt has become known for his pioneering photographic depictions of wildlife on the African savannah.

From 3 March, In The Gallery will show an exhibition deidcated Nick brandt, with works from the collection of Morten Larsen.

His sharp and tightly composed black and white images portray the natural world with an almost supernatural attention to detail. His portraits of wild animals convey intense interest in the subjects and elevates them beyond both the documentary and the scientific.

His interest in these seemingly endless plains and the creatures that inhabit them, was roused during his early career as director of music videos, such as Michael Jackson’s Earth Song.

Contained within these works is the realization that the landscapes and species, which they depict might in the future only exist in images. As such, they are at once testaments to the extreme beauty that can still be found on this earth, and elegiac imprints of a vanishing world.
