The National Geographic magazine August issue features an closer look at lions of the Serengeti National Park in Africa through a stunning collection of photography and video. And to share the wild experience to more audiences, NatGeo has just launched an amazing web experience showcasing the photography of Michael “Nick” Nichols‘ adventure in getting an in-depth look in the lives of the Serengeti lions. The layout and aesthetics of the web experience are very different than what we normally see.
The Serengeti Lion is a unique combination of video, audio and stills that pushes the boundaries of digital storytelling by letting you discover lions in a new way. This amazing project is based on photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols’ August story on lions after making several extended trips to the Serengeti between July 2011 and January 2013, determined to break new visual ground in the coverage of the Serengeti Lion. The web experience allows you to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the Serengeti lion and offers an intimate and moving insight into the lives of these iconic animals.
The combination of minimalist web design and amazing showcase of photography makes this digital storytelling a must see! Scroll down below for some notable stills from the website.
