    On a road trip between Cape Town and Mozambique, a chance encounter in the desert plains of the Karoo saw Daniel Naudé confronted by a feral Africanis dog. The moment left a deep impression on the artist and provided the impetus for his Animal Farm series. In his Africanis images, the artist foregrounds a breed whose ancestors are captured in the hieroglyphics of the Egyptians. The crossbred Africanis species signifies, in the eyes of Naudé, an odd reflection of South Africa’s culture and identity amidst a complex landscape. Drawing inspiration from the work of British artist-explorer Samuel Daniell (1775–1811), who set off across the South African landscape and captured the fauna and flora as he went, Naudé undertook a similar journey between 2007 and 2011. Along the way, he photographed not only more Africani, but various animals with strong ties to humans as he explored the relationship between man, animal and landscape, culminating in a series of 50 photographs.
