Sven Začek - Yes, I have been digging


Wild boars are very shy animals. If they hear something they will run straight back to the forest. They will never only run for a certain distance and then stop to turn around like foxes and roe deers do. No, there is no such curiosity in the life of wild boars. It took me two weeks to get this pack used to the sound of my shutter, because at first I could only fire one shot every day, because after that they disappeared for the evening.
