Jaco Marx: Photographer of the week
Share this article on
Jaco Marx's body of work is amazing and outstanding. He had great interest in Nature- Travel- Wildlife- Landscape- Wilderness photography and even more... He wants us to experience a glimpse of the beauty surrounding us and his images witness a tremendous respect for Mother Earth wherever he take his pictures. Jaco quotes: “To be honest, the thing that had me take up my camera was a drive for conservation. This in the end is even more important than the most beautiful photo taken. Photography is one of the strongest tools in conservation of fauna and flora. We need to be awaken! We need to take charge before it's too late. Caring for this planet is our duty, I proudly make a stand to do whatever I can to save this beautiful land, river, forest...”

As described in his masterpiece: ‘The end of the game’, the interaction between humans and elephants and the constant fight for habitat is a fatal and lasting fight. There will not be happy endings in every situation, but the fight is real and the consequences very negative a majority of cases. It describes the inevitability of confrontation between humans and animals and the eventuality.
