About the piece:
To get inspiration, Carroll unearthed old boxes of photographs she had taken whilst living in Africa. Whilst sifting through she realised many of the species she had taken photos of were now endangered, their numbers shrinking at an alarming rate. This led to her establishing ENDANGERED INKS as her way to help conservation. ‘Siesta’ captures a leopard dozing in the morning sun. This is a rare moment, as they are naturally shy and benefit from stealth, camouflage and lightning speed reactions. Carroll wanted to capture a leopard in a moment of peace in its environment, as they are beautiful, incredibly elegant and mostly solitary.
