When British-born photographer Nick Brandt first started photographing animals in the East African wild in 2000, he didn’t realize how quickly the region would be transformed. Their disappearing habitats inspired his latest series, “Inherit the Dust.”


Mr. Brandt and a team of over 20 crew members placed life-size photos of giraffes, elephants and other animals in their former stomping grounds—places that had become factories, quarries and garbage dumps. Mr. Brandt captured the resulting landscape, often with gray skies overhead, creating an evocative portrait of change and loss.
