Olobor, a famous lion from the ‘Black Rock’ pride in Kenya’s Maasai Mara, takes a rest. It was late afternoon when I found Olobor resting. All around the lion, the ground was black, having been burnt by local Maasai herdsmen to stimulate a new flush of grass. I wanted to capture his majestic and defiant look against the dark background and lowered my camera out of the vehicle to get an eye-level portrait. Taken in August 2021 in Maasai Mara, Kenya.

Printed in super matt finish of Hahnemüle Photorag. The paper gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so we recommend extra care when handling.
