Capturing big cats as Vincent J. Musi, a photographer hailing from the United States, did calls for a lot of bravery. Up close and personal takes on new meaning when near these ferocious felines. Although undeniably beautiful, the sharpness of their teeth holds a promise of strength if approached in the wrong way. Perhaps that is why so many people are enamored with big cats, especially photos of them. This is as close as they will ever get.
Captured in studio against a black backdrop, the Big Cats photo series really allows their beauty to shine through. From their tawny coloring to their soulful eyes and, yes, their piercing teeth, there is something new to take in which every sharp image.
