Nick Brandt is a photographer who photographs exclusively in Africa, one of his goals being to record a last testament to the wild animals and places there before they are destroyed by the hands of man. In 2000, Brandt embarked upon his ambitious photographic project: a trilogy of books, On This Earth, A Shadow Falls, Across the Ravaged Land to memorialize the vanishing natural grandeur of East Africa. In September 2010, in urgent response to the escalation of poaching in Africa due to increased demand from the Far East, Brandt founded the non-profit organization called Big Life Foundation, dedicated to the conservation of Africa's wildlife and ecosystems.
