Big 5s

Jamie Joseph

Founder, Saving the Wild

“I get most excited when I’m photographing black rhinos. Ever curious and commanding, there is never a dull moment. Or when I see a rhino image that captures the spirit of this modern-day dinosaur. With the head up, from the tips of the two horns to the curve of the back, and the skin-like armour, there really is nothing that compares with this profile of an icon. Here is an animal that has roamed planet Earth for 50 million years, survived the ice age, and can survive almost anything, except human greed.

Conservation photography has played an important role in Saving the Wild’s mission to dismantle rhino poaching syndicates and fight organized crime, not just through funding and ‘photography as a force for good’, but through visual storytelling.

Wake up world. This is a war on greed. What we stand to lose is priceless.”
