Simon Needham is a humanitarian and wildlife photographer . He takes pictures of white lions to show the world the beauty of this rare lion color mutation.

“I’ve been in close proximity to lions to the point where even though I was technically safe, it was still very scary,” Simon said in an interview.

“But safety is always my first priority. Although whenever I am in close proximity to a lion I feel that I am in danger, I always take precautions to ensure that I am truly safe. A lion is almost 8 times stronger than a man, and just by being in the presence of a lion, I can feel the power they have.”

To show the beauty of this enormous feline, here we bring you the gallery of Simon’s best photographs:
