"Passage of Promise" by Guy Combes

Passage of Promise
by Guy Combes

Amboseli elephant herds with Kilimanjaro in the background. Proceeds from the sale of each of these prints go to Amboseli Trust for Elephants. ATE’s research arm, the Amboseli Elephant Research Project, has made many important contributions to elephant research over the years. The knowledge gained from the AERP team has profoundly altered the way we think about, conserve and manage elephant populations. Our research has highlighted the ethical implications of dealing with sentient, long-lived, intelligent and social complex animals and our knowledge base provides powerful and authoritative support to elephant conservation and advocacy campaigns worldwide. For more than four decades AERP’s presence has helped ensure the survival of the elephants as well as the Amboseli ecosystem.

AERP research covers many areas including: social organization, behavior, demography, ecological dynamics, spatial analyses and mapping, communication, genetics, human-elephant interactions and cognition. Our long-term datasets underpin all these research topics.

A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Tthe Amboseli Trust for Elephants.  It was started by Cynthia Moss, an American who is well known in the conservation world for coordinating groundbreaking research into elephant communication, intelligence and social behaviour.  Now the organisation coordinates outreach to educate local communities, monitors poaching crime, and runs research programs in the greater Amboseli area.  This an area in Kenya, at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, where elephants congregate in high numbers.  A recent continental elephant census has revealed that elephant numbers have fallen more dramatically in the last five years than ever before in history, which makes the work the folks are doing at ATE more important than ever.

About Guy Combes

Guy Combes was born in Kenya in 1971, the son the late wildlife artist Simon Combes. His art background came not just from his father but an interest in exploring different forms of media and commercial application.  His education included sculpture and design at college in England where he also majored in history of art. He returned to Kenya in 2001 and quickly rekindled his love for Africa and her wildlife, becoming involved in a number of conservation causes for which he now tirelessly campaigns including Soysambu Conservancy―his Kenyan home―and preserving the rich mosaic of biodiversity in the Great Rift Valley.

Guy has been Artist-in-Residence at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in Oradell, New Jersey since 2006 and this have given him the opportunity to reach an American audience, not just with his art, but his experience of Africa. He is a signature member of both Artists for Conservation and the Society of Animal Artists from whom his work has been awarded and accepted into national museums and tours. He regularly revisits Kenya where he leads expeditions for artists and groups of conservation biology students from the U.S. He has also regularly lectured at zoos and universities on the East Coast including Yale and George Mason, with whom he has set up research programs at a facility he helped develop at Soysambu Conservancy. 

This is where he has found his niche and the future for Guy will involve his time being spent working on artistic projects that bring awareness to international audiences and developing his own field knowledge on the ground in Kenya in order to inform himself and the people he is so passionate about showing it to.
