After dedicating his last book to pay homage to the Lion, it is to another king that the photographer Laurent Baheux has decided to pay homage, and not least ...
With ELEPHANT, he tells nearly 20 years of unforgettable encounters with this emblematic animal from Africa and which never ceases to amaze him, revealing another of its facets to him at each new meeting. In Kenya, Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Tanzania, he crossed paths with these mammals that so majestically embody the wild world, its beauty and its mysteries.
Laurent provides new proof of the need to save elephants and protect their environment, not just because they populate our collective subconscious, from illustrated children’s books to the travel stories of early explorers, but because they are closely linked to the balance of our planet and that they refer us, like mirrors, to our own finitude, ineluctable, we who resemble them so much, so strong and so fragile at the same time.
For the first time, a crowdfunding is launched with HEMERIA editions to pre-order the book and have his name in the book. It is also the opportunity to discover a lot of other options and to participate in a unique experience: book, book with print and a safari with Laurent Baheux.
