Instagram Takeover – Jason Florio

Starting 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 Smithsonian (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.

So often with magazine assignments, 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, exclusively, over the next week, that did not make it to the printed page.

I do hope that you can stop by – starting from tomorrow, Saturday 16th June – and check out my images @smithsonianmagazaine

‘I couldn’t keep putting my people at risk,” he said. “I couldn’t go to their families next time and tell them it wasn’t the poachers but one of our guys who got shot.’

‘The thieves were hunting mostly in Kruger National Park and the areas around South Africa’s eastern border with Mozambique. But as anti-poaching measures there improved and the price of rhino horn kept soaring, to tens of thousands of dollars a kilogram, the poachers began expanding into new territory.

They first hit Van Niekerk’s place, deep in the interior, in January 2017, came again the next month, and a third time that April. They killed six rhinos...’ read more online/Smithsonian Magazine
