Kunstnerens egen kommentar
Jim Brandenburg’s iconic image of a wolf ’s head sticking out from behind a forest tree is widely regarded as a key moment in the history of nature
photography. It was the first photograph in this saturated genre that art critics considered to be art.
Whenever the National History Museum in London has a retrospective of great wildlife images of the last generation, this seminal work tends to be front stage. This is deserved - it has a hypnotic intensity. Jim’s photograph will always stand the test of time - it is made complete by its lack of completeness - the viewer is allowed to interpret, dream and let the imagination take over. This is clearly preferable to being dictated to - which happens with the bulk of photographs of animals. We are engaged by being asked to fill in the gaps. As Diane Arbus reminded us “a photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you know.” Jim’s image is never far from my mind - especially with intelligent animals that couple athleticism with stealth. The tiger is a perfect example and I had my oppor-tunity in 2019 on a very hot day in Ranthambore, India to borrow from his conception. The tiger was walking on an incline and this allowed me to use the ridge between us. The high sun and arid canvas below allowed me to deliberately overexpose everything other than the tiger’s face. I wanted as much negative space in the photograph as possible.
Tigers are probably the most dangerous animal we work with and can indeed let our imagination kick in with this photograph. Imagine, indeed, that you are on foot in the highlands of India and you see this in the eye piece of your binoculars. It would be altogether quite terrifying.
