Documenting the increasingly widespread destruction of the African landscape and the animals that call it home, ‘The End of the Game’ bears witness to the irreparable damage inflicted on nature by man. Including chilling images of mass elephanticide in Kenya and starving rhinoceroses in Uganda alongside text, Peter Beard paints a haunting reminder of the devastation facing the natural world.

About Peter Beard

Having been irrevocably shaped by his first visit to Africa at the age of 17, photographer Peter Beard (American, b. 1938) devotes his practice to capturing the endangered wildlife of Africa. Through both stand-alone images and meticulously crafted diaries, he highlights the devastating effects man has had on nature. His images were published in ‘The End of the Game’ (1965) and have been exhibited internationally.
