If the original and eternal Africa explodes of thousands of colors, its black and white representation, seen through the lenses of Laurent Baheux, adds an unequalled poetic dimension! The French
photographer, internationally recognized, witness sadly privileged of the threats which weigh on the cheetah on the whole continent, was the very first to join effectively our cause...
Nothing could suggest that his early taste for the drawing would offer him one day the opportunity to realize his child's dreams. Inspired by the images of school books, and the atmosphere of the
“cabinets de curiosité”, his naturalistic studies look today as so many pages of a giant travel journal.

had a “crush” for the big cats… especially cheetah!
