Tanzania. Big cats

Humans have always admired these animals. Some of them are like royals, impressive and majestic, they scare the night savanna by its roaring, spreading horror at its inhabitants. Others are as fast as the lighting. Each line of its bodies emphasizes superiority in speed and in a couple of seconds an unfortunate victim has no chances to survive. Thirds are careful and secretive. Every move is soft and flexible. Right now it lazily sleeps on a tree, having lowered paws and a tail, not paying attention to the events around. Another moment passed – and it softly slides on a tree trunk, down, in a grass where, while merging with vegetation and masking, it leaves away, showing all the independence and proud loneliness. Everything said is, of course, about big African cats — lions, cheetahs and leopards. Photographers’ dream, from professionals to beginners! Everyone finds something special while working with Big Cats in Tanzania— from peaceful family portraits of kittens playing next to a mother to rigid scenes of hunting and murder, with pieces of meat and bloody muzzles with naked canines. Serengeti National Park is the ideal place for shooting of these surprising animals. Welcome home.

Mentawai. Secrets of Siberut Island.<br />Travel to the past.

Mentawai archipelago lies 100 km west from western Sumatera. Siberut is the main island by 90% covered by dense tropical forests. Small rivers are the best, if not the one, means of transport in the inner regions, where unique and barely known Mentawai tribe live their primitive way of life.

There are no roads at Siberut, not at all, even of rural type, there is no electricity, radio or TV, no water pipes. There is only fresh rivers, and air, tropical forest, animals and bird. And everything, that can fly, grow, swim, run is used by Mentawai as food: coco and sago, monkeys, fish and ant slags.

At midnight women catch river crabs with their handmade nets and flambeus. Men hunt with poisoned arrows. Each wild fowl has its own arrow-head of antiar poison.

Their every day is struggle to survive. We will unveil secrets of these people and see magic tattoos. We will see how they maintain their unique culture and way of life in our cruel times of total globalization.
