Once again National Geographic published a photograph taken by our staff-photographer Andreas Baier. The image is entitled «Living Room Lion»; and is in use for the «Strange Terrains» story. The National Geographic Photographer Renan Ozturk, as a picture editor in charge for this assignment, wrote about this shot: «This is one of the most wildly bizarre and creative interpretations of the strange terrains assignment. Horrifying, fascinating and pink. Great depth and framing with beautiful angles of the walls as well a clear subject with the lion.» From a submission pool of 7.000+ images 23 photographs have been chosen for the final story which has been freshly pressed.

Previously published photographs by Andreas Baier on National Geographic’s online plattform:
1.) «Mother & Child» Story: A Child Will Be Born.
2.) «Undiscovered» Story: Bathtub Breakfast.

Pulp Fiction’s famous foot massage reinterpreted

12 Jun

Remember Vincent’s and Jules’ famous dialogue about giving Marsellus Wallace’s wife a firm foot massage; and their difficulties to figure out if a firm foot massage is better to be seen as equal as screwing her up to death, or not? You can literally see in the lion’s face that he is thinking about the correct answer. Is it the same ballpark? Is it not? Who knows…

Well, what we know is that the picture was taken in The Lion Park near Johannesburg and that the tickle-junkie is nine-year-old Jamu.
