“I seek not to capture anything with a photograph,” says Graham Springer. “Not the essence. Not the spirit. For, by very definition, these things cannot be captured. The essence and spirit of the places and animals that I photograph are, however, inextricable from the images that I create.” And while he photographs wildlife, Graham does not consider himself a wildlife photographer in the true sense. Rather, he sees himself as a photographic artist whose muse is the wild places and animals of the African landscape. “I try, as much as one ever can, to portray a sense of the majesty and spirit that wild places and creatures inspire in me,” he says.
