ABOUT JOACHIM


​For years, Joachim Schmeisser has been photographing the last giants of Africa at close range, creating exceptionally intimate portraits of species threatened with extinction.
In his new series – The Last Of Their Kind – he focuses on the beauty of creation and its fragile transience. 
These striking images are timeless works that can be interpreted on different levels:  as depictions of a distant past or as iconic memories in a not too distant future in which we can only admire these majestic creatures in zoos. They are both an homage and a final warning - visual revelations that sharpen our clouded view of nature in all its infinite complexity as well as recognizing what treasures we might irretrievably lose.
