At The “Precipice”: Limited Edition Rhino Prints From William Fortescue

Red Eight Gallery is thrilled to announce a limited print run of wildlife photographer’s stunning “Precipice” image featuring a critically-endangered white rhino at Ol Pejeta in Kenya.

“The fate of the rhino has long been, and remains today, in the balance. Once widespread they are declining in numbers frighteningly quickly and as a result stand on the precipice of extinction. 

When shooting white rhino images on Ol Pejeta, I was aiming to create something that depicted the rhinos struggle but also exemplified their unrivalled nature – gentle, curious and ultimately calm. 

Accompanied by one of the conservancies fantastic rangers, Simon Nakito, we found a pair of white rhino as a storm brewed over Mt. Kenya. Needing to photograph one on its own to make the composition work, we waited for them to venture far enough apart from each other and with Simon’s expert supervision I was able to lie flat on the ground and silhouette the beautiful rhino against the gathering storm clouds.”
