Shaaz Jung ‘s work primarily spans across South India and East Africa. His love for nature is reflected in how he portrays his subjects through his photography and writing in a unique style. His images of a black panther exploring Kabini Forest in Karnataka, India were recently posted on social media.
“Though I enjoy photographing my subjects in their natural environment, I have always been fascinated by depicting my work in a more artistic form. Unlike art, a photograph can be replicated or duplicated and this motivated me to create images that were true to the nature of the subject but with an artistic feel that made it unique. My aim was to evoke a sense of surrealism which symbolized a beautiful world with magical creatures, a world we may soon only dream about.“

In search of psithurism, I found myself under the ancient trees of life, as silver raindrops danced and wild flowers reached for the sky. The air was rare that day, laden with secrets, and in that powerful silence, I found the Panther. . . I’m not one for numbers but we recently hit half a million and I want to thank all of you for being the backbone of this page. It’s been an incredible journey and I’ve met some incredibly talented people on this platform. Thank you for supporting me 🙏🏼 . . #shaazjung #500k #nikon #natgeowild #nature #wildlife #blackpanther
