Pieter was born in south Africa and has been fortunate to have lived in some of the worlds most remote places. He is a qualified safari guide, fishing guide and holds a degree in game ranch management. His love and understanding of the bush and its animals has provided himself with the opportunity to capture wildlife in its rawest form. He currently resides in Kenya with my wife, my best friend. In August 2014 he won the audience choice award for the World Elephant Day Photo Competition held by Africa Geographic Magazine and the Conservation Action Trust.
Amanda Nedham is an artist from Toronto who recently received her MFA in painting from RISD and is currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Her studio practice takes a mixed media approach, but is firmly rooted in drawing. For the last few years her work has been informed by mapping a taxonomy of funerary rights and memorials, often culling from museums and historical archives and more recently filtering these through the souvenir. Her work traces a desire to understand how people relate to one another on a spectrum that ranges from murder and mourning to raising questions around exchange and empathy.

Nicolas Szuhodovszky was born in Stockholm, Sweden, 1975 and educated in the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest during the years 1999-2004. The artist’s aim is to, within the framework of classicist technique, capture a vision that is hard to render, although the motif in itself often may be casual. Nicolas’ work shows a personal vision of visual imprints from a modern context. This vision is marked and inspired by realist painters from older times, but becomes highly his own. Nicolas drew the blue watercolor baby elephant featured in our shop.
