This image is part of the ‘Umoja' limited edition and is photographed in the Masai Mara.
As a photographer, I have a love/hate relationship with mid-day light, especially in combination with blue skies. After a long and sunny morning in the Mara Triangle, we, therefore, decided to head back to the lodge to have breakfast. When driving the ridgeline, overlooking the beautiful mara landscape I suddenly noticed movement in the corner of my eye and I asked our driver to stop. In fact, I needed binoculars to see if I was right, it could have easily been a rock. And there she was, a female elephant with huge tusks crossing the savanna in search of shade or water. Our guide instantly told us it’s a very unusual sight to witness an elephant cross this open landscape in the middle of the day and we decided to wait. When scanning her line of path, I suddenly found a bunch of acacia trees on the far left and all I could do was crossing my fingers and toes that she would move in that direction. But she decided to stop and graze for a while, in the mid-day heat. After making us patiently wait for another 45 minutes she started to move again and then the waiting paid off. She walked right into the frame and the image I envisioned happened right in front of me.

What is acrylic glass?
Your artwork will be printed on matte Fujicolor Chrystal Archive paper, mounted on a Dibond plate, and presented under 3mm glossy UV-coated acrylic glass. The colors are more vivid and there is an extra sense of extra depth. Includes a ‘floating’ hanging system.
We can also frame your 'acrylic glass artwork' in a wooden frame of choice, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request a quote and receive samples.
Do you offer framed fine-art prints?
Due to the custom-made nature of framed work, framed prints are only available through personal inquiry. However, we can frame each work exactly the way you want. We work with carefully selected types of solid wood, anti-glare ART-glass, and several forms of passe-partouts (matt board).
