The subjects of Patrick Bentley’s images are the iconic wild animals of Zambia’s Luangwa Valley. His photograph’s provide an insight into their uniqueness, recognising their temperaments and individuality.
Through these images an observer cannot help but feel an emotional connection with the magnificence of this region, where the untamed Luangwa River and the valley’s fertile soils and lush vegetation create a wildlife haven like no other in Africa. It is a place of unparalleled beauty and dramatic seasonal variations, an environment that demands protection.

Hope that despite the seemingly endless fight against the destruction of nature, others will be inspired to join our cause and that the Luangwa Valley and the magnificent animals that live here will endure.’
