If you have seen some of my previous posts, notably The Week in Pictures #93, you will know my extreme fascination with black and white editing. It intrigues me to see how one can play with an images contrasts and textures through stripping the picture of its colour and focussing on the detail. The fine hairs, the scars, the eyes and the depth of the subject. I feel the same way about Lions, and the current Coalition on Londolozi, The Majingilane Males. These Lions lead such complex lives. One filled with warfare, suffering and ultimate dominance for success. Each step they take and breath they breathe, leaves a legacy on these magical lands. Through these few images I wish to highlight the intensity of their being and the somewhat ghostly live they lead.
