A South African Safari photographed by Chris Davis

South-African-safari Chris Davis

Chris Davis grew up on the north shore of Chicago – leaving to attend Parsons School of Design, where he studied photography. After graduation, he went to assist full time for Hiro, and, then worked full time for James Nachtwey as his studio manager. Since then, Davis has worked on a variety of projects both commercial and editorial. This work is from his series, Safari, which was shot in South Africa. Davis writes: ‘As I sat in the Land Rover and looked around, it all seemed fake – like I was in front of the dioramas at the Museum of Natural History. Even the animals appeared to be posing’. Davis is based in Brooklyn.

    I hate to be the person to say this… but are these supposed to be composite shots? Some of the animals appear to be inserted into the scene… and not that well…

    Jake,
    None of these photos are composites in any way – all completely real…

    Thank you for sharing some great pictures Chris. They remind me of when my wife and I went on a luxury safari holiday to South Africa. We visited the Kruger National Park and had the time of our lives. I’m so glad that we brought two cameras with us, as my wifes digital camera soon ran out of storage space.
