Nick Brandt / making it your own

You've seen one photograph of a lion, and well, you've probably seen it a million times -- it is pretty tough to not get the same kind of shot if you're lucky enough to go on safari.

HOWEVER, in the case of Nick Brandt, the virtual stamping of his name consistently from one photograph to the next is one wonder unto itself. Even more astounding is the intimacy and almost human like quality of these magnificent animals that he is able to capture. It is as if he establishes a rapport with them and he gets not only their permission but garners their cooperation.
