Jason Florio – Smithsonian Magazine Instagram Takeover: Rhino Relocation, South Africa

 

Starting today, Saturday 16-Friday 22 June 2018, I’ve been invited by Smithsonian Magazine to take over their Instagram page for a week (huge thanks, Smithsonian!)

I was commissioned by the magazine (via my NYC agent, Redux Pictures). for an assignment in South Africa – ‘Movable Beast‘ – a story about the largest rhino relocation, by road, in history from South Africa to Botswana, working with the writer, Todd Pitock.

Check out @smithsonianmagazine Instagram page to see my exclusive, as yet, unpublished images.

So often with magazine assignments, there are a limited number of images, out of hundreds shot, that make it to the pages of the magazine. Therefore, this Instagram takeover is a great opportunity to share some of my favourites over the next week, that did not make it to the printed page.

I hope that you’ll stop by

The Poetess: ‘Hissa Hilal is the voice from behind the veil. Her word is her weapon. We’ll never see her face. Like the majority of Saudi women, Hissa is covered from head to toe. She is not allowed to drive a car. She doesn’t own a passport and requires consent from her husband for any sort of activity...’ Read more/see screening times at Valletta Film Festival.
