Laurent Baheux

About this photograph

This photograph comes from the very poetic black and white series that Laurent Baheux devoted entirely to the endangered species of the animal kingdom. The widely diverse African fauna is showcased here by a surprising play of light and shade. By capturing these animals at their own level, in a place that is almost entirely devoted to them, the artist imbues his subjects with real presence and reveals all of their nobility.Beyond a personal and initiatory approach, the photographer proves himself to be a dedicated artistic and environmental activist. Sensitive to and admirative of the beauty and power of the animals he pays hommage to, Laurent Baheux also expresses their innocence and great vulnerabilty, thus composing a visual paradox. The photographer would like to impress upon our gaze the dignity of these animals who continue to reign supreme on the African continent but whose survival is now threatened: ?Everywhere that humankind progresses, nature regresses.?

The artist
Laurent Baheux

Laurent Baheux was attracted to journalism and editing at first, rapidly discovering a passion for wildlife photography. He has always been fascinated by Africa. From 2002, during a visit to Tanzania, he began personal work on the wild fauna. From then on, he chose black and white, with its play of shadows, to immortalise rare and ephemeral natural scenes, constantly seeking to sublimate the animals, to capture the magnificence of their attitudes and the emotion of their gaze. His artistic career in black and white reached a turning point when he was nominated for the international Wildlife Photographer of the Year in 2007 in the ?Creative Vision of Nature? category. Through a stylised aesthetic approach that stands out from traditional photography, Laurent Baheux magnifies the nature and wildlife he encounters, whether it be tigers, lions, giraffes, elephants, or migrating birds.
