內容簡介

生態攝影師Nick Brand的警世之作,為逝去的野生生態所打造的攝影集
「作品中的拍攝地點,曾是一片金色草原,遍佈閃爍光芒的金合歡樹,大象、獵豹與犀牛漫步其間,如今卻成為一片被摧毀的荒蕪,透過Nick Brand震撼的影像,讓人們不得不重新審思生態保育的重要性。」─Kathryn Bigelow,奧斯卡最佳電影《危機倒數》(The Hurt Locker)導演

知名生態攝影師Nick Brand在完成他的攝影三部曲作品《On This Earth》、《A Shadow Falls》及《Across the Ravaged Land》的三年後,再度回到東非大草原,意外發現那些曾經熟悉的景色與漫遊其中的野生動物們皆已不復存在。由於東非大量發展垃圾場、工廠及採石場,以摧毀大自然的方式來擴張,曾經肥沃的土地皆變成一片荒蕪,野生動物也從此絕跡。Nick Brand決定在這些過度開發的土地上架設1:1大小的野生動物巨型照片,讓那些曾在這片家園出現過的大象、犀牛、長頸鹿、獅子、獵豹及斑馬圖象與過度開發的荒地並立,呈現出一種蒼涼的對比,這些動物的家園被人類佔據,而曾經的非洲大草原之美卻成為逝去的幽魂,作者希望透過這些令人震撼的影像喚醒人們的記憶,重拾對土地的情感。

Three years after the conclusion of his trilogy, On This Earth, A Shadow Falls Across the Ravaged Land, Nick Brandt returns to East Africa to photograph the escalating changes to the continent’s natural world. 

In a series of epic panoramas, Brandt records the impact of man in places where animals used to roam, but no longer do. In each location, Brandt erects a life size panel of one of his animal portrait photographs, setting the panels within a world of explosive urban development, factories, wasteland and quarries.

The people within the photographs are oblivious to the presence of the panels and the animals featured in them, who are now no more than ghosts in the landscape. Some of the animals in the panels appear to be looking out at these destroyed landscapes with sadness, as if lamenting the loss of the world they once inhabited. By the end, we see that it is not just the animals who are the victims in this out of control world, but also the humans. 

Inherit the Dust also includes plates of the original portraits of the animals that are featured in the life-size panels, the unique emotional animal portraiture for which Brandt is recognized. 

There are also two essays by the artist: a text about the crisis facing the conservation of the natural world in East Africa, and behind-the-scenes descriptions of Brandt's elaborate production process, with accompanying documentary photographs.
