A Cape Town-based wildlife photographer has scooped this year’s Global Eye photography award.
Chris Fallows’ winning entry, called ‘Air Jaws’, won the coveted award at this year’s START-net Fair in London.
It forms part of his collection, The Eleventh Hour, which was recently on display at the Saathi Gallery.
Chris says the photo, of a shark breaching the surface of the ocean, forms part of his 12-part photography series called ‘The Eleventh Hour’.
Fallows says wildlife photography plays a huge role in the conservation of wildlife species.
He says his work was well-received at the fair.
Fallows says he hopes his photography makes more people get involved in the conservation of Africa’s iconic animals.
