Trail cameras can tell us a lot about animal behavior and habits. They sometimes capture charming and utterly hilarious sights, and recently, there was quite a remarkable one. A trail camera in Papua New Guinea filmed an extremely rare and critically endangered black-naped pheasant-pigeon. The bird isn’t only super-rare, but this is the first time it has been spotted since its discovery – which was in 1882!
You’ve already met Helga Stentzel and her unique photos earlier this year. This talented artist turns ordinary into extraordinary, transforming everyday objects into something completely new and unexpected.
In her latest project, Helga created endangered animals out of clothes, but that’s only a part of it. Working remotely with other creatives, Helga’s creations “traveled” from London to Ecuador and became a part of a conservation campaign.
British photographer Tim Flach traveled the world for almost two years and captured endangered animals in close, intimate portraits. His project titled Endangered took him across the globe for almost two years while he photographed the animals that may soon disappear forever. You will have heard of some of them and seen their photos, but most of them are not so widely known. Still, all of them are beautiful and unique, and Tim captured their personalities and all their beauty in his images.
Tim shared some details about this series as well as the challenges that followed this ambitious project. It was an incredible journey for him as an artist, and he says it has changed him forever. I am sure you will enjoy his amazing images, even though they might even bring tears to your eyes.
