photography in madagascar
Nature photographer Paul Bertner is an ideal example of the magic that the red island exerts on its visitors. With all its magic corners, their so far still undiscovered creatures and their unique beauty it arouses a fascination that hardly anyone can escape. Paul Bertner has managed to express his fascination for Madagascar in breathtaking images that astonish interested parties and connoisseurs alike. His original profession, however, is different: Bertner is a biologist with a degree in cell biology and genetics, but realized not long after graduating that the tight constraints of the average lab setting weren't right for him. With a Trip to the AmazonBertner broke out of the conventions that had been given to him. The original, partly arduous way of traveling he chose, enriched his wealth of experience and demanded his mind in a way that everyday life as a biologist would never have allowed. A tire blowing out on his minibus in the middle of the jungle was certainly the smallest adventure Bertner experienced on his travels. Over the course of time, Paul Bertner came to realize more and more that his Travel, his wildlife and wilderness observations, and his camera formed an inseparable symbiosis. Equipped with the camera on the tracks of unique life forms on this planet, he found to his inner satisfaction and at the same time discovered a way to share it with others.
