For the new release book « Urban Safari » the Natural History Museum of la Chaux de Fonds in Switzerland is hosting the exhibition of 30 prints of Laurent’s urban wildlife best pictures until the 26th of Feburary 2011.
The 6th of October, the best pictures of Laurent’s work on urban wildlife will be out in a coffee table book. The book is published in French and English and can be found in any good bookshop. Laurent is just back from Spain where he completed his last chapter and photographed urban wild boar…
The very last mission! « Wait, wait, wait! There is one State that is missing on our list and we need a shot for the exhibition! We forgot the Vatican! Bloody hell, Oooops, I mean, Dear me! » I guess that’s how the WWE’s team thought when they sent me to the ultimate and last « country » of Europe we haven’t covered yet.
The New edition of Latitudes Animales will stand at Drancy (north of Paris) the 9th, 10th and 11th of April.Laurent will be part of the 5 photographers for this prestigious exhibition highlighting the biodiversity on our planet.
An exhibition will stand at Auxerre, France, regarding the Urban Wildlife in Europe. Two different places, first at the Natural History Museum then the « House of the Environment and Water », (Maison de l’eau et de l’Environement)
Despite the official permit to photograph in Codrii National Park, this guard keeps bothering me and arguing that I can’t take pictures from the roof of the scientists’ building… Without my translator I am trying to explain that I am only taking pictures of the morning lights and I do have the permit from the Director himself.
Probably I wasn’t clear enough as he grabs my 500 mm with my D3 and lifts them above the fence, warning me that if I’d carry on, he’d throw them from the roof… My gear is already half way in the air when I discover myself as a dangerous maniac lunatic shouting and ready to slaughter anyone with my tripod… The guard must understand french as he steps back and puts my lens carefully on my bag. He leaves the roof without a word with this fairly surprised and worried look…
Wild Wonders of Europe… Mmmmh, remote places, peaceful, green and human-free zones… so my next mission is: London.
After Barcelona and the peregrine falcon, Wild Wonders of Europe sent me back to one of the most populated capitals in Europe to get some new pictures of red foxes… I have worked a lot with urban foxes but that was years ago. All the places I used to go have changed and the foxes have vanished. So I decided to talk about the project to half of the Londoners…
This time Wild Wonders of Europe sent me to Barcelona, to get some pictures of the fastest bird on earth, the Peregrine Falcon.
In 1999, Eduard Durany and Jusep Valls reintroduced the peregrine in the city of Barcelona. One couple decided to establish their livingroom on one of the most visited monuments in Europe, The Sagrada Familia, the magnificent cathedral conceived by Antoni Gaudi.
First mission: Donna Nook, England, UK.
After checking on Google, Donna Nook appeared to be a RAF bombing range… Hmmm, what a funny choice for a Wild Wonders mission to photograph soldiers at a military camp. But since Obama has been elected and the media have portrayed him as the perfect new president of the world… maybe Soldierus militaricus is a freshly new threatened species on the IUCN red list and WWE wants to record the last specimen…” I realized my mistake when I checked the “Must Do shot list” including : fights, close up and… mating!?! I was about to quit the project when Florian Moellers called me to say “Noooo, not those big fat guys! THOOOSE big fat guys : the SEALS!!!”. OOOOOOK! Of course, the seals! …
Laurent has been invited to speak at WILD PHOTOS held in London at the Royal Geographical Society on Oct 24/25. He will be giving a presentation on « How Wildlife photography can improve wildlife conservation », alongside with Frans Lanting and Karl Amman and many more…
