Photography: Black & White on Paper.
"Encounter" is my most powerfull image to date and the result of perseverance, patience, preparation and some horrifying moments close to her majesty.
The idea was to capture a lioness walking towards me in full-frame. Not with a 400mm telelens, the typical "machinegun style shooting", heavily cropped and from a high angle. This hints at an artificial encounter and doesn't translate to as much personality and intimacy as a shot from nearby, from below eyesight and with a wide-angle lens. I believe I succeeded and the effort results in a truly transcending image.
