Dusk to Dawn

Wildlife silhouette photography is very popular in general but African wildlife silhouettes are perhaps the most popular of all and especially a giraffe silhouette! This gallery contains exclusively silhouette photography and specifically wildlife silhouettes from Africa.

Wildlife silhouette photography works because the human eye is very complex and the human brain very advanced in terms of its ability to process light and imagery. This results in us seeing a world that is visually busy and very different to silhouette photography. What the camera has the power to do through both silhouette photography and silhouette photos, is to simply declutter our world. By leaving only the outline of the subject in my African wildlife silhouettes, your focus shifts to the animal itself.

This Dusk to Dawn gallery of African wildlife silhouettes featured on the BBC News and there is perhaps nothing more quintessential to Africa wildlife photography than African wildlife silhouettes and especially a giraffe silhouette or an elephant silhouette. I invite you now to browse this collection of African wildlife silhouette photography.
