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Check out @smithsonianmagazine Instagram page to see my exclusive, as yet, unpublished images.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