Marina Cano is a talented and internationally-renowned nature photographer that takes stunning photographs of wild animals. Her adventures have taken her to various countries in Africa and Europe to photograph animals in their natural element.
Cano’s photos have a powerful, intimate, and even somewhat humanizing quality to them. Many look like portrait photographs, and the animals’ eyes as they stare at the camera seem extraordinarily expressive and almost human.
She takes the majority of these photos at national parks and on wildlife safaris, including in the Cabarceno national park in her native Spain. Her striking black-background photos, which draw a lot of attention, are made possible by man-made shelters that the animals sometimes occupy to hide from the weather – they are not studio photos.
