Photographer's Note

While in our Hammerstein ranch-hotel in the desert of Namibia we visited some animal they had kept inside very large cages, they were baby animals abandoned and raised by the local people. There was a leopard named Lisa, some caracal and two cheetah brothers named Oscar and Wild. We entered in the large cage where they were and even we caressed one of them. Isn't a happy portrait because his eyes are ever hunting the freedom ahead of the fences.

Enquanto estávamos no hotel-fazenda Hammerstein visitamos alguns animais que eles mantém em cativeiro, dentro de enormes recintos telados. Um destes animais era Lisa, uma leopardo, havia ainda alguns caracals e uma dupla de irmãos guepardo, chamados de Oscar e Wilde. Entramos na grande area cercada onde estavam os guepardos e acariciamos um deles. Estes animais foram encontrados ainda bebês, abandonados e criados pela fazenda.
Este é um retrato triste, seus olhos andam sempre buscando a liberdade para além dos alambrados.
