After a long and intense downpour that lasted through the entire night, two of the Black Rock brothers rejoice in the early morning as the rain stops, the soft ground blossoms and the crips and cool air becomes abundant with the aroma of new life. For a brief, fleeting moment they find warmth and comfort in their brotherhood, as if two souls merge into one.

In order for a viewer to really feel and experience the powerful presence of the subjects I photograph; I am often trying to be as low and close as possible. With lions, this is no easy job for very obvious reasons. However, on this particular morning, this particular scene finally unfolded in front of me in a way I imagined during all those years of failed attempts. One of the strongest and most powerful family ties in all of the animal kingdom, the bond between two adult male African lions. A scene that left me with many questions. Isn’t it a crazy thought that we humans, were once as wild as these lions? And, in the end of the day, aren’t we all brothers and sisters?

What people say about my prints


We have been following Pie’s work for more than 5 years now. Therefore, having one of his Umoja prints decorating our home, is not only an incredible honour, but also a testament to our support for his mission as an artist and conservationist. His work is now a beautiful daily reminder of our own memories made in Africa on various trips to Kenya as well as Zambia.

It’s been such a rewarding process to pick & choose the artworks as well as the materials for our two framed Umoja prints. Pie carefully guided us through the entire process and even invited us in his studio in Amsterdam to see some of the samples in person. His approach to making art as well as his commitment to protecting nature, is tangible in every step of the way.
