Portraits from a kingdom
Since I was a child I have been intrigued by lions. I simply find them to be truly mysterious and magical animals. And I am not the only one who is intrigued by these extraordinary creatures. Their majestic charisma and personality has been well portrayed anywhere from movies to books as well as being symbolized in logos. Lions are true icons of royalty and power.
With my project "Portraits from a kingdom", I am aiming to go beyond traditional documentary photography to convey those magical qualities that intrigues me the most. The project is exclusively photographed in Masai Mara, Kenya, the kingdom of lions.
Spending time with lions in the wild is a truly an remarkable experience and I hope that my photography will inspire a future with healthy lions still roaming the great plains.
