Photographer Ed Hetherington: black and white animal portraits
This series of pictures by Ed Hetherington captures the personalities of wild
safari animals - even though they look like they've been taken in a studio.
Shot in stunning black and white, the detailed portraits of lions, zebra, deer
and rhinos were taken over the space of four-and-a-half years.
Photographer Ed Hetherington, 34, from Georgia, USA took the portraits
whilst travelling throughout India and Africa.
