Thirty-four years ago, I visited the Masai Mara savanna in Kenya, East Africa for the first time. The wonders of this magical place immediately captured my imagination and I’ve been back to photograph the wildlife more than 40 times since. When I think of Masai Mara, I think of white clouds playfully floating in a deep blue sky, endless green grasslands, beautiful sunrises and mesmerizing sunsets, and of course the wild animals I enjoy photographing so much. The Corona pandemic kept me away from Africa for three and a half years, but I finally made it back this year and reconnected with the savanna and its wildlife. From my exhibit I hope you can feel their charm and maybe even be tempted to visit Kenya one day soon.
