About the photographer
ALISON BUTTIGIEG is a Maltese IT Consultant and self-taught Wildlife Photographer. She loves spending time in the wilderness, especially if it happens to be in Africa – the place she has been enamoured with ever since she set foot on the continent in 2005. The things she loves, even more, are the wild animals inhabiting the wilderness and photographing them. It is a privilege to have these small windows into the animals’ daily lives – a privilege that Alison feels is her duty to share with others through her photography.
