While on a road trip through South Africa's Karoo region in 2006, Daniel Naudé encountered a feral dog foaming at the mouth and wearing an intent gaze. This run-in motivated Naudé to begin his series of photographs on the Africanis, wild dogs thought to have migrated from Egypt and now inhabiting the South African countryside.

Although in Naudé's images the dogs appear to sit politely and patiently for their portraits, photographing these lithe, skittish animals is not an easy task. The Africanis project is the first of three series by Naudé to examine the complicated relationship between humans and fauna, and the symbolic roles that animals often play in our world.

Taking his cue from the artist-explorers of the early nineteenth century, Daniel Naudé's photographic essays document the landscape, people, and animals of rural South Africa. Taken together or individually, Naudé's photographs reflect on the murky boundaries separating man and nature, often revealing a sense of nostalgia and reverence for both domesticated and feral animals within a quickly vanishing natural world. Naudé digitally manipulates images from his journeys so that, in his words, he "sees on his screen what he saw out there." While his photographs reference the staged narratives of portraiture, his compositions are achieved through patient observation, capturing a solitary moment of stillness in otherwise untamed and unpredictable landscapes.Read Less
