Biography

Daniel Naudé first found inspiration for his striking photographs of animals during a road trip through the South African desert in 2006. Since then, he has continued to focus on the ancient breed of wild Africanis dogs, capturing the animals in regal portraits. While they appear staged, the images are actually the result of patience, careful timing, and digital techniques, which the artist uses to highlight an uneasy moment of human-animal interaction. Since his early photographs of dogs, the artist has continued to explore the South African countryside, capturing animals, both domesticated and wild, in a nearly fairytale world in which imperfections appear only upon close inspection.
