“On the road to elephants” is here

My elephant book is ready to order!

“On the Road to Elephants” is a soft-cover photography book with text. Although, it’s not a ‘normal’ wildlife book. It’s about elephants, and more. I explore, with my camera, how elephants live in modern day (South) Africa. It’s a mixture of photo book, personal travel experiences and informal guide book.

Beyond fun pictures and travel anecdotes, it’s also a more serious journalistic document about South Africa, and an exploration into our relationship, as humans, with elephants in a historical context.

Elephants are a keystone species in Africa, which means that the rest of the ecosystem, including other wildlife, depend on their survival. The issues affecting elephant populations vary from region to region. That’s why I focus on South Africa, on its own, and in context of what’s happening on the continent.
