At the heart of nature

Photographer Gérard Koehl is exhibiting his work in the basement of the King Dagobert. For those who have never seen lynxes, bears, squirrels or foxes up close, this is an occasion to make a trip there.

Gérard Koehl spends all his free time photographing nature. He has traveled the length and breadth of Alsace to capture the images that will be on exhibit until May 1 in the cellar of the King Dagobert in Traenheim.

"I'm in the Vosges, towards Geispolsheim, in Ried, and even in a reserve near the Czech border," says Gérard Koehl, a commercial photographer who first and foremost, photographs from the heart.

As he doesn’t have a set work schedule, Gérard can afford to get up at 4 a.m. to go into the forest. He is on the lookout and waiting, hidden on the ground under a khaki tent.

"Often, I come up empty handed. We must learn to accept this,” he says, adding that animals are wild and have well-developed instincts.

"This is why I try to position myself in the opposite direction of the wind," says Gérard Koehl. “But when an animal is present, the moment is very powerful. I like this contact with nature.”

“It’s pleasant to be alone, without a sound. I love the ambience of dawn,” he adds.

It was difficult to choose the 28 photographs for the exhibition.

They are in any case surprising. From squirrels to rabbits and from fawns to bears, Gérard Koehl with his photos allows visitors to see what their eyes will surely never so closely see and in great detail.
