"Under a dark sky" - Wildlife photography by Robby Bolleyn
The selection of limited edition prints is the result of a series of extensive safaris in Tanzania, Eastern Africa.
Robby Bolleyn wanted to portray the African animals as mysterious and elegant creatures, while capturing their wildness and savagery.
Searching for penetrating portraits, he wished to present the African animal kingdom in an unusual and authentic manner.
All images were taken in natural conditions, mainly within the Serengeti ecosystem. The animals were not to be viewed with a merely observant eye, but were to be examined with much more depth. Each image had to be a challenge, every single time.
