NANYUKI - De Mens en de Hoorn is a project by Olivia Kortas and Kasper Goethals in collaboration with photographer Johannes De Bruycker. Based on the story of Najin and Fatu, the last two northern white rhinos on earth, they tell about the dysfunctional relationship between humans and their planet.

In various chapters, they show how a species was eradicated, how global biodiversity is declining and how humans ultimately make a final attempt to save the rhino, with technology. For the first series of stories, Olivia and Kasper traveled to the Czech Republic, Germany and Kenya.
