  After a career as a college teacher with teenagers in difficulty, Fabrice CAHEZ chose to become a professional naturalist writer-photographer, in order to devote himself full-time to his two passions: writing and photography. Although he continues to be particularly fond of shooting around the small Vosges village where he has lived for more than forty years, he very often goes to do reports in other regions of France or Europe. At the same time, as volunteer president of the “Natur’images” association, he has been organizing for fifteen years in Tignécourt, in the Vosges, the festival of the same name in order to promote the image of nature and the defense of the environment. Collaborator of the Biosphoto Agencies, Nature Picture Library and several magazines such as "L'Oiseau Magazine", "Nat'images", "Image et Nature", Fabrice Cahez is also the author of 14 books, including the very last "Un hiver au Der" will premiere at the festival.

Exposition

 

Lake Der-Chantecoq is one of the largest artificial reservoirs in Europe, classified almost entirely as a Natural Hunting and Wildlife Reserve, managed by the French Office for Biodiversity. In winter, it provides thousands of birds with a migratory stopover or resting place for several months. Through his exhibition "Plumes du Der en hiver" Fabrice Cahez wishes to show the richness of this unique place and the diversity of the species that frequent it, from the most emblematic and visible, such as common cranes to small passerines, passing by the very many ducks, geese, seagulls, cormorants, wild swans and the impressive white-tailed eagle. All the images were taken from authorized locations in order to best restore the magical atmosphere of early winter mornings around the Lac du Der.
