I don’t doubt that some of the readers here already know Laurent Baheux. But I really wanted to bring his work back to the front and help some people discover it too.

French sports photographer, Laurent has been working relentlessly on a very personal research that I consider as quite different from the most usual African wildlife photography. Off-tune with the more documentary kind of approach of most wildlife photographers, Laurent Baheux presents a picture where the photographers touch is very perceptible. A black & white picture with strong contrasts and dark shadows. Frames and attitudes bringing surface grain and structure to the eye.
