Kunstnerens egen kommentar
I think tiger photography in India is probably my toughest assignment. The leading tiger reserves are busy and highly regulated and then the backgrounds of sticks and rocks can make for messy and untidy backdrops. It is a golden canvas interrupted by back lines stretching to the horizon. Hence, funnily enough, the tiger’s coat - the evolution of species - is truly an extraordinary phenomenon.
It is also rare to be in a position whereby the camera is lower or even at the same height as the tiger. I have a profound dislike of shooting down on an animal and these reserves can be unyielding in that capacity.
The manic manoeuvering of jeeps around a tiger that characterises much of the daily routine in Bandhavgarh takes away a great deal of the serenity from this magical and timeless park. Also, it hardly counts as original content, if there are 100 people with cameras all within 100 yards of each other.
Which is why we stick to Ranthambore. The tiger numbers are lower per square kilometre than Bandhavgarh, but there is less traffic and a far greater chance of working on one’s own. In Bandhavgarh, the roads largely cut through forests, whereas in Ranthambhore the landscape is more of a cocktail of forest, grass and accessible river beds.
This photograph was taken in Ranthambhore about 9.15 am - too late for 95% of the jeeps to still be allowed in the park, but early enough for the light to be kind. I am a little lower than the adult tiger as he is moving through slightly elevated grass.
If I had to choose an ideal time in the morning to photograph tigers it would be around 9 am for the reasons above. It is a numbers game in India and we have two images taken at that time in 2018 and 2019.
