Three years after the conclusion of his trilogy, On This Earth, A Shadow Falls Across the Ravaged Land, Nick Brandt returns to East Africa to photograph the escalating changes to the continent's natural world. In a series of epic panoramas, Brandt records the impact of man in places where animals used to roam, but no longer do. In each location, Brandt erects a life size panel of one of his animal portrait photographs, setting the panels within a world of explosive urban development, factories, wasteland and quarries. The people within the photographs are oblivious to the presence of the panels and the animals featured in them, who are now no more than ghosts in the landscape. Some of the animals in the panels appear to be looking out at these destroyed landscapes with sadness, as if lamenting the loss of the world they once inhabited. By the end, we see that it is not just the animals who are the victims in this out of control world, but also the humans. Inherit the Dust also includes plates of the original portraits of the animals that are featured in the life-size panels, the unique emotional animal portraiture for which Brandt is recognized. There are also two essays by the artist: a text about the crisis facing the conservation of the natural world in East Africa, and behind-the-scenes descriptions of Brandt's elaborate production process, with accompanying documentary photographs.

Here Nick Brandt applies his animal portraiture to a caveat about the Earth's fate... he places life-sized panels of grand endangered species--elephants, rhinos, zebras, lions, apes--in the exact locales where the animals once roamed.--Jack Crager "American Photo " The wall-size prints of 'Inherit The Dust' are impeccably beautiful and stunning, as well as profoundly disturbing. They convey the vast spaces and light of contemporary Africa with cinematic immersion and incredible detail.--Jim Casper "LensCulture " Brandt has deftly turned his art into a call for action.--Jack Crager "American Photo Magazine " Brandt's photographs, which at first glance can seem static, are in fact suffused with movement and with a sense of the ephemeral quality of life.--Peter Canby "The New Yorker, Photo Booth " An evocative portrait of change and loss.--Alexandra Wolfe "The Wall Street Journal " Sublime photos...a beautiful bleakness.--Mother Jones Jarring and powerful...the photos are as beautiful as they are melancholy.--Wired Nick Brandt's epic panoramas serve as a heartbreaking epitaph to a paradise lost.--Sunday Times UK Brandt's new collection is his most powerful and heart-wrenching to date.--The Daily Beast Nick Brandt's ravishing portraits of African animals are like premonitory memorials, taken to aid the cause of staving off extinction. In Inherit the Dust, his astonishing panoramas of those portraits - installed as life-size panels in industrial and urban wastelands that have trampled the animals' habitats - are a jolting combination of beauty, decay, and admonishment. The result is an eloquent and complex "J'accuse," for the people are as victimized by "development" as the animals are. The breadth, detail, and incongruity of Brandt's panoramas suggest a collision between Bruegel and an apocalypse in waiting.--Vicki Goldberg, Art Critic, Author The wasted lands in Inherit The Dust were once golden savannah, sprinkled with acacia trees, where elephants, big cats and rhinos roamed. These now dystopian landscapes - as Nick Brandt's unvarnished, harrowing but stunning work reveals - brings us face to face with a crisis, both social and environmental, demanding the renewal of humanity itself.--Kathryn Bigelow, Film Director, "The Hurt Locker " The images in Inherit The Dust are heart-wrenching and important. This tough new series is a call to action - if it is not too late - and pulls no punches in confronting us with the devastation of their habitat.--Phillippe Garner, Co-Chairman, "Christies " With Inherit The Dust, the quiet dignity of the animals that Nick Brandt photographs is shockingly juxtaposed against the indignity and disarray of our own. These haunting photographs force us to think about what we are doing, and who is at stake.--Carl Safina, Author, Biologist, "Beyond Words, What Animals Think & Feel " Nick Brandt's remarkable new work, Inherit The Dust, is a photographic essay in environmental ethics. He asks, in the most stark fashion: "What are we doing to this planet? What have we gained, and what have we - and the other animals with whom we share our planet - lost?"--Peter Singer "Philosopher, Author, Animal Liberation " The contrast he draws is striking--both an elegy and an accusingly pointed finger... In Inherit the Dust, Brandt has found new life for some of his unreleased photos.--Jordan G. Teicher "Slate " Nick Brandt's new photographic work, i>Inherit the Dust, is his visual cry of anguish about the looming apocalypse for animals and habitats in Africa... The resulting images are simultaneously beautiful and horrifying, because they illustrate the irreconcilable clash of past and present.--Michelle Bogre "American Photo "
