THE KING OF THE ANIMALS
IN ALL ITS RICHNESS AND CHARACTER
Baheux’s black-and-white lion photographs show this feline animal with the precision and texture of a studio portrait
—its many different movements, postures, behaviors, and expressions captured with startling intimacy.
Playing among the pride, out hunting its prey, or eyeing us directly from the page,
Baheux’s lion photography is as much a tribute to the lion’s character, power, and feeling
as it is a haunting reminder that this most impressive of animals is also among the most endangered wildlife on earth.
A member of the "Big Five," the lion has long been the target of hunters and trophy collectors.
WILD AND FREE LIONS
All the pictures in this book show wild lions living freely in their natural habitat in Africa.
The photographs were taken from a distance by the photographer working alone,
his eyes glued to the camera and its viewfinder.
So as not to interfere with the daily existence of his subjects,
Laurent Baheux works without an assistant, without remote controls, without photographic traps, drones, or robots.
The images were taken between March 2002 and June 2019,
over the course of about thirty trips to Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Namibia, and Botswana,
each trip lasting between two weeks and two months.
