Simpson’s new show, ‘A Journey through the Masai Mara’, is the seventh in the Crossroads exhibition series at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Viceroy hotel. It’s a breathtaking window on the Kenyan Mara-Serengeti, with its abundant wildlife and indigenous people.
How long does it take to catch a lion’s gaze? A whole afternoon, apparently – that’s how long it took Charlotte Simpson to capture the magic moment on camera. In the artist’s own words, photographing wildlife takes a lot of patience. Waiting for the perfect image requires a huge amount of focus and dedication. And it’s also apparently very rare to find a lion facing you with its ears pricked up, which makes Simpson’s photograph particularly special.
