I have been keen to attempt another image using this style since I created ‘Tiny Tiger’ in 2019. Photographing a baby animal against the pattern of its parent adds another layer to the narrative. The giraffe is the perfect animal for this style of photograph, and I have been focusing on getting the image for over a month — on the fourth attempt everything finally came together. I titled the work ‘Tiny Twiga’ in homage to ‘Tiny Tiger’, the image that inspired the style and the series. Twiga is also Swahili for giraffe.
