A healthy buffalo (Syncerus caffer) bull strolls with majestic grace across a parched opening, displaying its magnificent boss to observers. As formidable as they may seem, these buffalo bulls are more vulnerable to predators than those which remain in the herds. There is no mobbing defence outside the herds. Most males depart from breeding herds between 10 and 13 years of age.

Aaron Siskind is an American photographer who followed his passion for abstract expressionism with his camera. He focused on nature and architecture creating images from flat surfaces. His first camera was received as a wedding present and his honeymoon was spent taking photographs. He was a socially conscious photographer and produced a series of images about life, the “Harlem Document” being the most renowned.
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured foreverÖ It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
This image, and others of your selection, can be acquired from the author printed on fine art canvas of photographic paper for wall mounting.
