Dassie on the rocks

The rock hyrax or dassie is not at all afraid of heigths. Balancing on a rock above the crashing waves is its idea of a relaxing spot. Dassies live in groups of up to 80 animals. Their teeth show a pair of elongated upper incisors, which they have in common with their close relative, the elephant.

I am an anthropologist of religion and photographer, currently living in Pretoria, South Africa. I wrote my PhD-thesis on narratives about Satanism in Zambia. Currently I am preparing a new research project that uses photography as an ethnographic method. In my free time, I love hiking, safaris and enjoying nature through photography.
