PEROU's big cats project

January 12, 2020

Portrait photographer PEROU shot an incredible series of portraits, stepping out of his usual comfort zone of rock stars and celebrities to capture the raw stunning beauty and power of big cats. Shot entirely on location at Kent's Big Cat Sanctuary, this is a showcase of the endangered cats given protection and support in a bespoke site in the English countryside. PEROU's innovative approach to this project has resulted in images that blur the distinction between wildlife and fashion photography:

“Most people photograph big cats from a distance in daylight (for good reason) so I decided to enter the lions’ den (literally not metaphorically) and set up a photo studio there to photograph these magnificent animals the same way I would photograph a rock star or a fashion model.” explained PEROU. All 40 of the startling 2 metre sized images are displayed at London Bridge station till February, catch them if you can. See PEROU's work here
