Sightings of the Sacred, Hardback Book


For the past two years Daniel Naude has focused on photographing cattle in societies where these animals are venerated.

This beautiful book presents images from parts of Uganda, Madagascar, and India where these animals represent a culture's most profound beliefs.

Naude photographs his subjects with the same respect any photographer would lend toward humans.

Richly colored and exquisitely composed, these portraits capture the animals' presence and the landscapes they inhabit, while also telling us much about cosmology, ancestor worship, culture, and tradition of spiritual practices that have evolved over the ages.

Like the best photographers, Naude achieves this all within a single photographic frame.
