This is a monochromatic limited edition photographic print by Max Garner Reidy

Elephantis was a Bull Elephant, taken in South Africa, whilst on a safari. When greeted by a small group Elephants I couldn’t help but notice how small their tusks were. I asked the ranger, why their tusks are so small. He replied “Sadly in Africa the Elephant population is now made up, predominantly of Elephants with shorter tusks. This is a result of poachers, killing longer tusked Elephants, in order to feed the illegal Ivory trade. This results in an unnatural form of “natural selection”, whereby the Elephants most likely to survive long enough to reproduce, are those with short tusks.”

My name is Max Garner Reidy, I’m a 20-year-old photographer from North West London. My work, ‘Elephantis’ was recently amongst those being exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. The photograph of the Elephant was taken whilst visiting Cape Town with my father who was filming out there. I fell in love with the wild life in South Africa and brought home photos of Elephants, Rhinos, Zebras and Giraffes, amongst others. I use my own unique style to bring the images to life, concentrating on those finer details that show each animals’ individual beauty and character. Recently, I was invited to be the official photographer of Watersprite, the film festival at Cambridge University. I also covered a recent record launch for Sony Record’s Country and Western section. These opportunities have allowed me to work on film sets in the UK as well as South Africa, capturing images of many well-known faces. After my A0 piece at the Royal Academy was sold, I continued to offer my unique pieces to customers up and down the country. Prices are available on request and bespoke work can be undertaken.
