Breathtaking Black & White Animal Portraits by Lukas Holas

“Animals are a matter of my heart.” These seven words are the only description Czech photographer Lukas Holas provides for his outstanding series entitled Portraits of Animals. His love and admiration for animals radiates clearly through each and every powerful close-up.

Shot in simple, but elegant black and white, the portraits showcase each animal’s individuality. Holas uses his skills in digital photography and graphic design to edit out the background from his photos and instead inserts a pure black backdrop for the animals. This focuses all the attention on the animals and lets their impressive physical characteristics and personalities take the forefront.

Enhanced by beautiful lighting and incredible detail, the intimate style of these portraits perfectly showcases Holas’s very inspiring approach to wildlife photography.
