India Song by Karen Knorr

India Song by Karen Knorr

Karen Knorr‘s works portrays the visual richness found in the stories of India using sacred sites to highlight caste, femininity and its relationship with the animal world.

In her most recent photography project, the “India Song”, each finished photograph is both a mystery and a fable. She recreated the Panchatantra – an ancient Indian collection of animal fables for the 21st century and blurred the boundaries between illusion and reality. She inserts the animal subjects by digital means within the consistently frontal interior photograph. These interiors are carefully photographed with a large format analogue camera and Knorr’s own photos of live animals are then inserted to the rooms and sites.

The India Song is her first solo show in United States. The series was also nominated for the 2012 Deutsche Borse Photography Prize.

Across the Ravaged Land by Nick Brandt

Images are powerful. They tell stories, even the most interesting and disturbing ones.

Nick Brandt has been spending the last decade documenting the transforming landscape of Africa and its wildlife due to the actions of human beings. In his photography project Across the Ravaged Land, the final part in his trilogy book, he documented the disappearing nature and animals of East Africa.

He included humans in his photography for the first time in this book – poachers killing for profit. Among his images are the famous Elephants of Amboseli, Lions in Serengeti, and the perfectly preserved creatures calcified by the salts of the Rift Valley soda lake where he arranges them to appear as though they were alive.
