‘THE LIVING FOREST’
‘THINGS YOU FIND IN THE FOREST’
SOPHIE SMITH is a Cape Town based photojournalist who works for African safari experts, go2africa. With a background in journalism, education and marketing, she aims to use her photography to bring awareness to humanitarian and conservation causes around the world, but particularly in Africa. She also dabbles in wedding photography and portraiture but when she isn’t taking photos she loves road-tripping adventures with her husband, rock climbing, hiking, long runs and quality time with friends (especially when there is good food involved). Sophie visited Odzala-Kokoua National Park in the Republic of Congo to photograph and write our main feature, THE LIVING FOREST. Sophie’s images can also be enjoyed in the gallery, THINGS YOU FIND IN THE FOREST.
A special thanks goes to African Parks, particularly Cynthia Walley, Guillaume Le Flohic, and Carien Soldatos who helped us put this issue together by donating their valuable time, information and imagery.
