Born in Poitiers in 1970, Laurent Baheux 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. Since the beginning of 2000, he has been creating a a collection of monochrome wildlife photographs, characterized by a contrasting, condensed style. 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. Laurent is actively involved with environmental organizations and served as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). In this context, he supported activities against poaching and exploitation, in particular hunting, bullfighting, or the physical and psychological abuse of animals in zoos and circuses. His photographs are on show in galleries and are featured in a number of books, publications, and exhibitions in France and abroad.
