Laurent Baheux's Wildlife Photos Are Now Available!

PurePhoto is excited to offer a wide selection of black and white wildlife prints by French photographer Laurent Baheux. For over 15 years, he has been compiling a collection of images of nature in a dense and high-contrast monochrome style.

"Head of Giraffes"

Born in France in 1970, he started his career in the frenetic world of international sport before moving his horizons to wilder climes, where flora and fauna continue to live in freedom.

"Chimpanzee in a Tree II"

"Cheetah Before The Hunt"

With his unique approach which rewrites all the rules on wildlife photography, Laurent strives to capture the personality and humanity in every animal as distinct individuals. He adopts the role of wildlife portrait artist, where aesthetics and sensitivity take precedence over a more documentary style. Close-up or misaligned shots, noise or grain, stark and deep blacks, he explores every possibility in order to magnify his subject rather than simply showing it.

"Polar Bear on Top"

"Wild and Romantic"

He is an active member of environmental protection organizations. In 2013, he became a goodwill ambassador for the UN Environment Program in a campaign combating poaching called Wild & Precious. His photographs are on show in galleries and are featured in a number of books, publications and exhibitions in France and abroad.
