VINCENT GRAFHORST’s passions are travelling and spending time in the wild. Photography is his quest, inspired by the beauty and splendour of the natural world, its epic landscapes and iconic wild animals. His aspiration is to create art, composed with natural light, colour, shapes and textures, out of amazing and dramatic moments in time and space, and display the un-paralleled beauty, diversity and grandeur of nature at its most impressive. If this helps to engender an awareness and appreciation of nature in others, thus conserving the natural world, he believes his art has achieved a higher purpose.
