There is something fascinating about photographing a rhinoceros. I set off in the early hours of the morning, driven by a desire that’s similar to finding a treasure. When we came down into the valley and discovered this beautiful rhino with it’s long horn and it’s two calves, I was totally stunned. The scene felt unreal, and very precious; it felt beautiful and delicate, but also strong and majestic.

Especially because this species has become so endangered and threatened through poaching, I feel personally obliged to show the world the beauty of this pre-historic animal. The rhino is part of our heritage and, if it becomes extinct, it will be like taking away our pride. We must not allow this to happen. I hope I am able to preserve this composition as I felt it on that sacred morning.
