Photos by Nick Brandt from the "On This Earth" and "A Shadow Falls" exhibitions. London born and raised, Mr. Brandt moved to the States in 1992 and directed music videos for Michael Jackson, Moby, Jewel, Embrace, XTC, and Badly Drawn Boy. After filming Michael Jackson's "Earth Song" in Tanzania (one of the best videos ever made), Brandt fell in love with the landscape and wildlife of East Africa. He has since vowed to exclusively photograph Africa, one of his goals being to record a visually poetic last testament to the wild animals and places there before they are lost to the hands of man. I'd say he's doing a pretty good job. I tip my hat to you sir. -Dread Perry-
