Land of Giants

Will Burrard-Lucas

Deep in the heart of a vast wilderness, some of the rarest creatures on Earth still roam; living relics from a bygone era, they are the last of Africa’s great tuskers. For the first time, these elusive elephants have been subject to an in-depth photographic study and are now immortalised in this series.

Will Burrard-Lucas, in partnership with Tsavo Trust and Kenya Wildlife Service, spent months photographing elephants in all corners of the Tsavo Conservation Area. Using the latest technology including his innovative remote-control BeetleCam, Burrard-Lucas has captured an intimate glimpse into the lives of Tsavo’s elephants and a spectacular photographic record of some remarkable individuals.

Against a backdrop of escalating human-wildlife conflict and the ever-present threat of poaching, this series brings a message of hope: that these giants are still out there – and they can still be saved.
