About the artwork
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.
