About the artwork

Although they are produced outside of their natural environment, Lukas Holas's majestic wildlife portraits capture the essence of each creature through the fences of the zoo. In this collection of contrasted images in black and white, the Czech photographer manages to transcend time and space. He succeeds in extracting the wild and exotic animal from its cage, highlighting its bestiality in the purest possible form. Photographed in close-up, against a black background and sophisticated lighting, Lukas Holas's imposing shots are different from traditional wildlife photography through their close affinity to the long tradition of photographic portraiture. Through simplified lighting, the spectator can hone in on the essential elements without the colour detracting from them, and thus discovers these animals from a new perspective. From a touching lion, resembling a soft toy, to one letting out a full-throated roar, we can only marvel at this beautiful testimony to the beauty and power of suspended nature.
