  • Ian was driven to raise awareness and create a permanent record of these rare animals by their astoundingly fragile situation. There are only four breeding northern white rhinos known to be in existance.

    All aspects of producing this set of prints, from conception to completion has been undertaken with the utmost quality in mind, involving craftspeople of many different trades, reflecting the care and protection these animals receive on a daily basis from the dedicated keepers, security guards, conservation organisations and individuals responsible for their welfare.

    All prints have been individually handcrafted fusing digital and traditional platinum printing techniques, using hand mixed emulsions, manually brushed onto Platine paper created by Moulin d’Arches from a mill founded in 1492 in Vosges, France. Each print is truely unique.

    The finished prints have been placed in bespoke commissioned English brown oak frames, inlaid with fsc mpingo, hand carved with the name of each rhino.This level of detail even extends to using the ultimate archival material for the glazing.

    Because of the bespoke nature of each print and frame, there will be variations. The images shown on this website are digital interpretations of the originals and can only give an impression of the real prints.

    Enjoy the view and help raise awareness of the fragility of these animals and the consequences of animal poaching.

    Ian has worked with the help of Ol Pejeta conservancy and Fauna and Flora international to create this set of images.
