Unique Photos of African Wildlife Through Hidden Spy Cams

Photographer Anup Shah has taken a new approach to wildlife photography, producing unique, up-close perspectives. By incorporating remote-controlled, hidden cameras in the open expanses of African wildlife territory, Shah is able to expose intimate points of view of these majestic and feral creatures in his project titled Serengeti Spy.

The photographer, whose body of work consists primarily of wildlife in the Serengeti and Massai Mara, is unlike the works of any other photographer out in the African savannas. Ordinary photographers with their camera in hand can only get so close without being mauled or trampled, but the cleverly camouflaged equipment installed into the landscape gives way to never before seen perspectives of herds of zebras leaping over and past, hyenas getting in close to examine the ticking contraption that is documenting their inquisitive inspection, and a breathtaking flock of flamingos taking flight overhead.

Shah’s project is currently available as a 204-page book titled Serengeti Spy: Views from a Hidden Camera on the Plains of East Africa, featuring a myriad of animals in their natural habitat engaging in activities that range from running and grooming to feeding in packs.
