June-July 2014 : exhibition "The Lords of the forests of Charente-Maritime" in Royan, France.
Exhibition of 30 photographs of animals: deers, wild boars and fallow deers of the forests and woods of the Charente-Maritime department. Portraits and animal behaviors in natural environments highlighting the beauty of that unknown nature.
From June 6 to July 12, 2014, we present 30 photographs in the photographic art gallery D&S Souchon in the city of Royan in Charente-Maritime, France. Two years of work were needed to create these pictures of the lords of the woods the Charente-Maritime region. We spent hundreds of hours in the woods, forests and prairies to capture these special moments. We wanted to highlight the beauty of the deers, wild boar, fallow deers in their natural environments. We paid special attention to the choice of the lights to decorate and dress the most beautiful colors of the coats of animals. We wanted to show in a simple way, the natural beauty of this very misunderstood area for wildlife photography.
We wanted to show that the Charente-Maritime area has a lot of wildlife treasures unknown by tourists and local people. Mammals we photographed are fearful, discreet and fleeing humans. Yet with a good knowledge of the forests and habits of mammals and with a little bit of patience, it is possible to observe and photograph these animals that we nicknamed the 'Lords of the wood of the Charente-Maritime'.
