We are pleased to announce the Third Prize in the Young Artist category in the ENDANGERED Art & Photography Contest 2016. Colorless by Elizabeth Kachanova. All Rights Reserved.
Black and white portrait of a bongo antelope.
These beautiful creatures have been affected by habitat loss and hunting, which could lead to them becoming threatened. They have already begun to disappear from some territories.
Bongos have very stunning chestnut colored coats with brown and white patterns throughout their bodies. If they die out, then we will no longer be able to see their charming colors.
By depicting the bongo in black and white, I hope to make the viewer ponder the true colors of the bongo, and realize that if they die out, then we will never be able to truly see their colors.
