Homage is a beautifully presented collection of images from my print collection of the same name. Made over the course of the 12 years I lived and worked in the wilderness of Northern Botswana, it is very much intended as a Homage to this remarkable wilderness area.
As a visual artist, I wanted this book to be about the imagery alone and, through this, try to evoke an emotional sense of the place that I love very deeply. It is printed with only one image per page, with no room for distraction.
“Graham Springer is a voice for the wild. Through the lens of his camera and without a single caption, he has stirred in me a deep sense of relationship with his subjects. Every image, every animal speaks for itself. They do not need a caption. They reach out to you. The photographs, in warm monochrome, evoke a sense of timelessness and more … a sense of melancholy. How much longer will these animals continue to exist as they were born to? What will it take to finally realize that the wild animals of the world are as much a part of the human psyche as they are a part of the landscapes in which they belong?" - Dr. Ian McCallum
This is a large, collectors book consisting of 80 plates, printed on a specially sourced uncoated matte art paper. This paper has a wonderful tactile quality to it and holds the ink exceptionally well, ensuring the subtle tonality of my fine art prints is accurately reproduced. It is bound in linen, with embossed titles and a tipped-on cover print and presented in a protective slipcase.
The publication of this book was made possible through the very generous support of The Malcolm Ainscough Collection.
