Over the last five years, CCF supporter and board member Mark Segal has traveled to various cheetah research and conservation centers, in an effort to show the beauty of this magnificent predator and to draw awareness to its endangered state in the wild. Known for his moody and emotional portraits and fashion work, Mark Segal takes a personal approach to photographing nature―employing a vision that differs distinctly from most wildlife photographers.

The images collected in CHEETAH, designed by Fabien Baron, stand at a waypoint in Segal’s elusive and ongoing odyssey toward a deeper understanding of this regal feline and the mysterious hold it has on him. His wish is that viewers will be captivated as he is by the beauty of the cheetah and will recognize the imperative to protect the animal and ensure its survival on our planet.
