ELISABETH NEWTON PEARLS

Savage beauty

I have always admired the work of Peter Beard. Gorgeously unexpected, his collages are a unique combination of part photography, part journal entry, part found object.

PeterBeard

He is known for his photographs of African wildlife – often including plants, written observations, and bits of bone or blood in his compositions. Having first traveled to Kenya in 1955, Beard’s work is at once both incredibly beautiful and ruthlessly cruel.
