Kunstnerens egen kommentar
This image was close to the preconception of what I envisioned when I arrived on the Zambezi (just a little better than I dared hope). My goal was a full on “face off” portrait of a hippopotamus, which emphatically conveyed both the enormity of a bull and also the primeval bone structure of his face. This animal, more than any other remaining on our planet, would have walked onto Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park set, had they ceased to exist. They are half contemporary African wildlife, half dinosaur, and 100% lethal when compromised. The problem I had was that I wanted to get close and low and with thousands of hippos on the Zambezi, this requires either a large dose of bravery or a momentarily compliant animal. In most cases, they will drop their heads and go underwater if approached - they are mammal submarines with little tolerance for humans. Working on the Zambezi can be extremely frustrating and the world does not need any more long distance banal hippo shots from a boat - in which there is neither intensity nor immersion.
