An Impending Silence: Vanishing American Wildlife
Photography by Carol L Leadbetter
One cannot return from an African safari unaffected. Lions, proud and free, prowl your memory. Great herds of grazing zebra and wildebeest wander across the horizon of your mind’s eye. Parades of elephants leave imprints of awesome power and size while stirring your heart with gentle nurturing behaviors.Carol Leadbetter’s photographs are a testament to what we may lose. Some images convey a sense of intimacy between the viewer and the subject. In others, a single animal is isolated against the great skies and plains, its weight challenging the grandeur of the land.
