Somebody is coming, Tanzania 2015About this photograph
The rocks that are also known as Kopjes are preferred points of view for lions and lionesses, who can scan the plain for potential prey in this way. It is also one of Laurent Baheux's favourite spots, since the bareness of the setting enables him to focus his photography on the posture or expression of the animal, just like in a studio shoot.Read more Read less

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.
