French photographer Laurent Baheux carefully captures the noble and refined beauty of the African animals portrayed in these black and white photos.

Having dedicated himself for the past 13 years to highlighting the majestic wildlife of the African plains, the photographer's upcoming book 'The Family Album of Wild Africa' features 300 black and white images of African animals. With the careful use of light and contrast, these intimate portraits connect the viewer to these wild creatures in a way that transcends mere documentation.

With this collection, Baheux shows the daily life and quiet dignity of the many wild animals that populate the African continent. Each animal transforms into an individual, and each photo forces the onlooker to connect with the subject on a more personal and intimate level.
