In essence

In this collection of images I have used a specialist lighting technique in order to exclude extraneous detail and highlight the intrinsic qualities that characterize each animal.

Three of the following images where finalists in the 2009 BBC wildlife photographer of the year competition with Baboon bonding winning an award in the black and white category. The series was also awarded an honorable mention in the fine art category of the 2010 Prix de la Photographie awards in Paris.
