This is a truly beautiful photo. This is a great example of how different textures can make a black and white photo stunningly vivid. For me, black and white is all about showing off contrast and texture, and this photo does an awesome job of that.
This little girl was born in Africa to French wildlife photographer parents, Tippi Degre had a most unusual childhood. The young girl grew up in the African desert and developed an uncommon bond with many untamed animals. Too gorgeous!
