9780692520543: Nick Brandt: Inherit the Dust

Three years after the completion of his trilogy, On This Earth, A Shadow Falls Across the Ravaged Land, Nick Brandt returned to East Africa to photograph the escalating changes to the continent's natural world and its animals. In a series of epic panoramas, Brandt recorded the impact of man in places where animals used to roam, but no longer do. In each location, Brandt erected a life-size panel of one of his portrait photographs--showing groups of elephants, rhinos, giraffes, lions, cheetahs and zebras--placing the displaced animals on sites of explosive urban development, new factories, wastelands and quarries. The contemporary figures within the photographs seem oblivious to the presence of the panels and the animals represented in them, who are now no more than ghosts in the landscape. Inherit the Dust includes this new body of panoramic photographs along with original portraits of the animals used in the panoramas, the unique emotional animal portraiture for which Brandt is recognized. There are also two essays by the artist: a text about the crisis facing the conservation of the natural world in East Africa, and behind-the-scenes descriptions of Brandt's elaborate production process, with accompanying documentary photographs.

About the Author:

NICK BRANDT has exhibited his photographs in solo shows in the US, the UK, and Germany. Born and raised in England, he now lives in Topanga Canyon, California, with his wife and menagerie of adopted animals.

Review:

"Nick Brandt's ravishing portraits of African animals are like premonitory memorials, taken to aid the cause of staving off extinction. In Inherit the Dust, his astonishing panoramas of those portraits - installed as life-size panels in industrial and urban wastelands that have trampled the animals' habitats - are a jolting combination of beauty, decay, and admonishment.The result is an eloquent and complex "J'accuse", for the people are as victimized by "development" as the animals are.
The breadth, detail, and incongruity of Brandt's panoramas suggest a collision between Bruegel and an apocalypse in waiting."
 -Vicki Goldberg, Art Critic, Author

"The wasted lands in Inherit The Dust were once golden savannah, sprinkled with acacia trees, where elephants, big cats and rhinos roamed. These now dystopian landscapes - as Nick Brandt's unvarnished, harrowing but stunning work reveals - brings us face to face with a crisis, both social and environmental, demanding the renewal of humanity itself."
-Kathryn Bigelow, Film Director, The Hurt Locker

"With Inherit The Dust, the quiet dignity of the animals that Nick Brandt photographs is shockingly juxtaposed against the indignity and disarray of our own. These haunting photographs force us to think about what we are doing, and who is at stake."
-Carl Safina, Author, Biologist, Beyond Words, What Animals Think & Feel

"Nick Brandt's remarkable new work, Inherit The Dust, is a photographic essay in environmental ethics. He asks, in the most stark fashion: "What are we doing to this planet? What have we gained, and what have we - and the other animals with whom we share our planet - lost?"
-Peter Singer Philosopher, Author, Animal Liberation

"Nick Brandt's latest work is both gorgeous and disturbing...Brandt has deftly turned his art into a call for action."
-American Photo, 10 Best New Photobooks Spring 2016

"Brandt's new collection is his most powerful and heart-wrenching to date."
 -The Daily Beast

"Nick Brandt's new photographic work, Inherit The Dust, is his visual cry of anguish about the looming apocalypse for animals and habitats in Africa... The resulting images are simultaneously beautiful and horrifying, because they illustrate the irreconcilable clash of past and present."
-Michelle Bogre, American Photo

"An evocative portrait of change and loss."
-Alexandra Wolfe,
The Wall Street Journal

"Sublime photos...a beautiful bleakness."
-Mother Jones

"Jarring and powerful...the photos are as beautiful as they are melancholy."
-Wired

"Nick Brandt's epic panoramas serve as a heartbreaking epitaph to a paradise lost."
-Sunday Times UK

Book Description Distributed Art Publishers, United States, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Three years after the conclusion of his trilogy, On This Earth, A Shadow Falls Across the Ravaged Land, Nick Brandt returns to East Africa to photograph the escalating changes to the continent s natural world. In a series of epic panoramas, Brandt records the impact of man in places where animals used to roam, but no longer do. In each location, Brandt erects a life size panel of one of his animal portrait photographs, setting the panels within a world of explosive urban development, factories, wasteland and quarries. The people within the photographs are oblivious to the presence of the panels and the animals featured in them, who are now no more than ghosts in the landscape. Some of the animals in the panels appear to be looking out at these destroyed landscapes with sadness, as if lamenting the loss of the world they once inhabited. By the end, we see that it is not just the animals who are the victims in this out of control world, but also the humans. Inherit the Dust also includes plates of the original portraits of the animals that are featured in the life-size panels, the unique emotional animal portraiture for which Brandt is recognized. There are also two essays by the artist: a text about the crisis facing the conservation of the natural world in East Africa, and behind-the-scenes descriptions of Brandt s elaborate production process, with accompanying documentary photographs.
