Last of Their Kind
- From the photographer behind Elephants in Heaven
- Remarkable, intimate pictures that bring us up close to Africa’s “Big Five”
- A tribute and a warning cry, showing some of the most endangered animals on earth
"Both an homage and a final warning highlighting some of the treasures we stand to lose forever, Last of Their Kind is a powerful record of nature's splendour and fragility." – Outdoor Photography
There are exactly two black rhinos left in the world, a subspecies of the white rhino, the very last of their kind. In this deeply poignant tribute, photographer Joachim Schmeisser presents these rhinos as well as other wild animals in the Amboseli National Park in Kenya, where Maasai tribespeople ensure that nobody endangers them. With his breathtaking black-and-white images, Schmeisser brings us up close to these extraordinary and endangered creatures, creating a powerful document of nature’s splendour and fragility.
