11. April up to the 29. Juny 2014 the Natural History Museum Paderborn, Germany presents more than 60 of my pictures and collages in big size prints from 24 to 32 inches up to 40 to 120 inches on original ©Canson Museums-Canvas.
Last year 20.000 people visited the exhibition in Bonn ... children with wondering eyes (the lions, cheetahs, wildebeest ... ) Photography can change the world. Conservation and photography go hand in hand!
Back from my wildlife photography workshop and the cowndown runs ... printing of the last big sizes picture on strong Canson Museums-Canvas and and monting of the pictures on galery-wrops. All pictures for the exhibition hand signed, 440 g Canson museums-canvas on gallery wraps.
The studio full up with the prints for my exhibition. All canvas pictures in time- and material-consuming handwork, from my good friends by BILDWERK (printed on an original photo canvas and professionally wrapped over a real wood stretcher).
I understand my work primarily as a conservationist and use my photography skills, my observations and conduct studies to document. In many of my pictures you can as a spectator, the special closeness and intensity that I feel to be developed during my years of working with wild animals in East Africa.
With my photographs and texts they want to contribute to the preservation of our natural heritage and inspire people about the beauty and uniqueness of the last remaining natural areas of the Earth.
I hope for many visitors in my new exhibition and would be happy about numerous suggestions and comments.
