About Graeme Purdy

About the artwork

This fearless lioness had been one of Purdy’s earliest subjects to shoot at close range. But on previous occasions, she had taken his camera and left the tripod for her cubs to play with (images of this can be seen in the book). A lot had been learnt and 6 months later, he had a chance to photograph her once more. Purdy was in no danger during this shot, but his camera was once again in jeopardy. When the lioness approached, Purdy wondered if he could hold his nerve? A good image required her to walk up to a distance of four feet from the camera, but at 2 or 3 feet she could swipe, bite, or just take the camera. On this occasion, Purdy’s timing was good and with heart in mouth, he bagged the image he had been waiting for.
