Beauty and the Bear

A series by Olga Barantseva

Stepan was found by his circus trainer Yury Panteleenko in a near starvation state, after being separated from his mother in a hunting chase. Sadly after being hand-reared, he was not really fit for the wild life, so now he spends his time modeling for Russian movies and photoshoots. One of these, is the series by Olga Barantseva which looks straight out of a fairytale, showing a softer side to the big predator.

Taken in a forest just outside of Moscow, for an anti-hunting campaign, the photos are simply aimed at showing the natural harmony between humans and bears, as Olga herself has said. For this shoot, Stepan was coaxed into different poses by his trainer with the help of mozzarella and sweet cookies, two of his favorites treats.
