In “Safari Club” photographer David Chancellor grants us an inside of hunters that have dedicated the larger part of their lives to assembling the displays of animals around them. If you’re not the hunting type like me, your first reaction may be one of shock.

Their work often remains unseen until after their own death when it is acquired by Natural History Museums and displayed in their collections. Chancellor said, that “until that time many choose to live with the animals they’ve hunted. Hunting endeavours are recognized by a series of awards bestowed upon hunters for various achievements.”

In an interview with American Photo he says that he is motivated to study the things he doesn’t understand, in the hope of provoking his audience to reconsider their own beliefs. ❚
