Wildlife Silhouettes Set Against a South African Backdrop


Wildlife, landscape, and travel photographer Mario Moreno was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. When he was 12, his family moved away but in 2006, he moved back, and he now spends his time exploring the African continent on a creative visual journey. In this vibrant series, entitled Silhouettes, a variety of wild animals are featured in their natural habitats.

The series is unique because we don’t see the details that are typical of animal photography. Rather, Moreno documents the magnificent creatures against a bright and dynamic sky. The results are these expressive silhouettes that are set within a unique and breathtaking landscape. The selection of animals ranges from more familiar ones like giraffes to creatures specific to the area, like a kudus and a blue wildebeest. Moreno says he is always searching for that ‘perfect moment’ when “everything comes together..light, timing and emotions that create a memorable and forever lasting scene!”
