British photographer Nick Brandt photographed his latest series, ‘The Day May Break’, in Zimbabwe and Kenya in late 2020. It is the first part of a global series portraying people and animals that have been impacted by environmental degradation and destruction. The people in the photos were all affected by climate change, displaced by cyclones and years-long droughts. Photographed at five sanctuaries, the animals were rescues that can never be re-wilded. As a result, it was safe for human strangers to be close to them and photographed within the same frame. The fog on location is the unifying visual, as we increasingly find ourselves in a kind of limbo; a once-recognisable world now fading from view. However, in spite of their loss, these people and animals are the survivors. And therein lies possibility and hope. For the very first time in Brandt’s work, the people and animals are photographed together in the same frame.
