Candid Smile is a wonderfully dramatic shot of a lion in South Africa. On a wild safari after a long search, the vehicle finally happened upon three lions resting in the field. It was late into the night well after sunset, and the natural light had completely gone. The safari vehicle’s headlamps were tilted down as a makeshift source of light to illuminate the only male lion in the group.

It’s turning its head towards the camera. Is it smiling? Is it threatening us? Either way its focus is wholly on us.

The picture is in black and white, with a solid inky black covering the entire background. The lion itself is almost swallowed by the darkness, and the sharp singular light source casts strong shadows. Meeting a lion in such close quarters in real life would be a terrifying moment, but captured from the safety of a zoom lens means we can admire its beauty and majesty from afar. The facial features are the most contrasting points of the image – fierce white teeth and burning eyes against the deepest of blacks. With the absence of color it draws you to the textures of the lion, the fur and longer hairs delicately picked out by the bright light. There are subtly different shades on the animal’s fur, tiny dots on the arms and soft ripples along the back that invite you (against your best judgement) to reach out and stroke it.

An image like this brings a sense of drama and cinematic action to a space, and would be equally at home beside neutral or vibrant tones. Whether you’re a seasoned safari explorer or someone simply wanting to bring a little adventure into your home, this print will allow you to get up close and personal with one of South Africa’s most fearsome residents.
