Images by Laurent Baheux
Laurent Baheux is a French photographer currently capturing images of animals in the last few protected areas on our planet. In 15 years, he travelled through East Africa and took pictures of the continent’s amazing animals. He went through Botswana, Kenya, South Africa, and Namibia to find the animals in their natural habitat, capturing the beauty and serenity of the animals as they roamed free, away from the cruel grips of humans.
Many animal species are falling prey to the greediness of hunters. Taking horns and tusks from animals such as elephants and rhinoceros leave them crippled and vulnerable to infection, unable to protect themselves without the protection of their horns and tusks. In his work, Baheux hopes to take a step towards bridging the gap between mankind and the other species that live on this planet.
