Hear George’s passion behind saving lions and the difficulty he had in capturing on camera these fascinating and charismatic creatures, including some close encounters!
The book manages to convey the full cycle of a lion’s life, to really show them in all their raw, natural beauty. Following their journey from conception…the wonder and perils of cub life, through their sub adult years and into the complexity of lion society and the pride.
Lion: Pride Before The Fall is a landmark photographic book which portrays the lifecycle of the African lion in all its natural beauty, drama and raw ferocity. Lion: Pride Before the Fall presents a stunning collection of wild lion photography with a clear, vital message – join the fight to protect Africa’s last wild lions, or risk losing them forever.
Conceived by critically-acclaimed photographer George Logan in collaboration with Born Free, this remarkable wildlife book brings the plight of Africa’s remaining lions into sharp focus. With its array of poignant, thought-provoking images, it celebrates the lifecycle of the lion in all its raw beauty and serves as a stark reminder of all that we stand to lose. Because with fewer than 20,000 African lions left, the time to act is now if we are to secure a future for this most iconic of species.
The foreword is written by Virginia McKenna OBE, Born Free’s Co-Founder & Trustee. She said: “No one, in my view, more strikingly has caught the multiple dimensions of lions’ behaviour and depth of character than George Logan. He has an unfailing sensitivity and admiration for the individual animal. This, for me, shines through each page of the book and is deeply moving in so many ways. There are many wonderful wildlife photographers, but George’s images are amongst the most intriguing, thought-provoking and original.”
All profits from the book will raise vital funds to support, protect and help re-establish The Last Lions of Meru in Kenya.
