Michel Zoghzoghi

Michel Zoghzoghi has photographed large predators since 2006. He makes vivid images of wildlife: lions, tigers, eagles, white sharks, bears, animals characterized by strength and innocence. He also photographed the Masai Mara in Kenya, whose territories are now threatened. “I want anyone who sees these images to feel the threat, and the need to respond. Predators have become preys. The animals I photograph are vulnerable. We, human beings, are the predators of the modern world.
