Striking Photos Show the Allure of Adventuring After Dark

When the sun sinks below the horizon and vast, starry skies appear, not everyone turns in for the night. For certain adventurers, evening brings a whole new world of opportunity—each one with an epic view of Earth’s atmosphere and what lies beyond it.

The Story Behind Christian Ziegler’s Portrait of a Rare Bonobo

On assignment for National Geographic, wildlife and conservation photographer Christian Ziegler was tasked with an unusually specific and difficult commission: to photograph bonobos in the wild. It hadn’t been done for more than 20 years but he succeeded, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

“I spent more than four months in the field to take portraits of this amazing species. It was really tricky – bonobos are an endangered species, they are rare and super shy. I was deep in the jungle for many weeks and at first I didn’t even see any bonobos, but with the help of primatologists I was able to locate and follow a group until they accepted me.”

“I needed to follow the group for hours on end – often 14 hours every day, covering more than 20km.”

The passion behind the lens…

Peter Kemp is a conceptual photographer from the Netherlands. His photography is based on his love of storytelling. Influenced by Johannes Vermeer and the other Dutch Masters, Peter’s work is dramatically lighted and has a sharp focus on detail. Peter states, “I try to create story telling pictures. With just a quick look, you might see an attractive photo by using colors and scenery. But a longer look might open doors to other little stories… In my scenes I focus on detail. All details are thought of long before my camera clicks.”
