Portraits of Big Cats by Photographer Goran Anastasovski

For big cats are the largest representatives of the cat family. Still, the main criterion of belonging to the big cats is not the size, and structure.

In contrast, for example, from the omnivorous bears or wolves and other canids, who are happy to eat food plant, cats – predators absolute. Or rather, are obligate carnivores, eating only meat of their victims.

46-year-old photographer from Macedonia Goran Anastasovski devoted more than 10 years of his life filming big cats, trying to highlight their “human qualities” in the photos.

‘I adore big cats and am fascinated with their beauty, said Anastasovski.

‘I took these photos to show people that these cats have everything we so desperately want – such as love, bravery, sincerity and loyalty.

‘My goal is to introduce people to the beauty and character of the big cats.

‘They are endangered animals and they should be loved, not killed.’

Anastasovski’s images show leopards, lions and tigers in surprisingly relaxed poses, with many of them sharing intimate moments with their companions.
