Plight of African Elephant

Publication: The East Hampton Press & The Southampton Press | by Mary Cummings Aug 18, 2009

For more than a decade, Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson have been waging an uphill battle against what they see as an increasingly narcissistic culture—one in which the wonders of the natural world inspire no awe and the wanton destruction of wildlife provokes no outrage.

Their weapons of choice have been both visual and verbal: stunning black and white photographs, notably those taken in remote areas of East Africa, paired with poetically powerful language in essays that celebrate the mysteries and myths of pastoral life and the animal kingdom, and warn of a desolate future without them.

In 2004, Editions Assouline published their “Lost Africa: The Eyes of Origin,” a large-format book with photographs and accompanying essay that illuminates the lives of pastoral groups whose members have long shared a harsh, if starkly beautiful, environment with Africa’s once abundant wildlife. Now they have a new book coming out this September from Merrell Press, “Walking Thunder: In the Footsteps of the African Elephant,” while another work by the well-known leader in wildlife conservation Gay Bradshaw, Elephants on the Edge: What Animals Have To Teach Us About Humanity,” recently published by Yale University Press, features Mr. Christo’s photographs.
