The Living Cube by
I moved into a apartment studio without storage room. So i made a minimalistic cube design with a shelf for my vinyl collection, my TV, Clothes and Shoes. On the cube is a guest bed and inside the cube is a lot of storage space. Remo from www.holzlaborbern.ch transferred my sketches very beautifully. My friend and Photographer Rob Lewis made this great photos. Info via Behance
Wow, I would really love something like this…
- Yusuf, a keeper, sleeps with three orphaned baby rhinos at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. The youngest rhino on the right was orphaned when poachers killed his mother on Ol Pejeta Conservancy. The calf was immediately moved to Lewa and is being hand-raised. The largest rhino Nicky, is not an orphan but is being hand-raised because her mother is partially blind.
- Adan, a keeper at Lewa, feeds three orphaned baby rhinos at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.
- Armed with assault rifles, the 91 response team patrols for poachers on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. The anti-poaching patrols look and act like an infantry unit. Dog handlers use bloodhounds to track poachers. Lewa protects a 62,000-acre area and supports more than 70 different animal species – including over 10% of Kenya’s population of black rhinoceros and 20% of the world’s population of the endangered Grevy’s zebra.
Ami Vitale sheds some much-needed light on the illegal wildlife trade and poaching of animals taking place in northern Kenya using photography as a platform to show how local communities are working to protect their wildlife from the heavily armed criminal networks of poachers that are devastating to the rhinos, elephants and many other plains animals of Africa.
