The Last Remaining Northern White Rhinos | Photograph by Justin Mott (@askmott)
"Peter Esegon, 47, one of the primary rhino caretakers relaxes with Najin and Fatu as the sun sets at Ol Pejeta conservancy in Central Kenya," writes #YourShotPhotographer Justin Mott. "This is part of a long-term personal project titled Kindred Guardians documenting people around the world who dedicate their lives to helping animals in need." This photo was selected for the July 19, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series.
“What a jaw-dropping portrait, Justin. The way Peter looks the rhino is full of love and speaks to his commitment to these magnificent creatures. Your clean composition with a sense of place gives us a sense of Peter's surroundings while protecting and loving the rhinos. I love it, well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)
