Marsh King (2016)

$1400 USD
Having photographed this Marsh Pride male in Kenya in 2006 it made me very sad learning members had been poisoned. Angry local farmers who had lost animals to predators baited carcasses to intentionally kill them. This is not effective; the lions don't get the memos to change their diet. There are better solutions for protecting livestock. Lion lovers are not unsympathetic to the preservation of peoples' livelihoods and are working to help all concerned. Soysambu Conservancy is currently building protective enclosures because they are excited to see the lions come back. What's an artist to do but go to the brushes. Having seen him allowed to eat first, undisturbed, I dare to assume he was their King.
