Portraits from a kingdom by Pekka Järventaus

“Portraits from a kingdom” by Pekka Järventaus

“Since I was a child I have been intrigued by lions. I simply find them to be truly mysterious and magical animals. And I am not the only one who is intrigued by these extraordinary animals. Their majestic charisma and personality has been well portrayed anywhere from movies to books as well as being symbolized in logos. Lions are true icons of royalty and power.

With my project “Portraits from a kingdom”, I am aiming to go beyond traditional documentary photography to convey those magical qualities that intrigues me the most. The project is exclusively shot in Masai Mara, Kenya, The kingdom of lions.
Spending time with lions is a truly remarkable experience and I hope that my photography will inspire a future in with healthy lions still roaming the great plains.” Pekka Järventaus tells Shut Your Aperture.
