‘Across this Ravaged Land’ is a depressingly beautiful collection of African animal images by photographer Nick Brandt.

As the title suggests these are not your classic animal beauty shots, even though they are stunning pictures. ‘Across this Ravaged land’ is more of a dire warning to humanity of the consequences of excessive poaching and environmental damage on some of the world’s most iconic creatures.

How long before the only rhino or African elephant we see are images in books like these?
