Andreas Koerner

Artist's Description

Mountain Gorilla – Muyambi

Mountain Gorillas are one of our most remarkable relatives. During the one hour which you have with the Gorillas on your trek you think you are unobserved sometimes, that’s what you are thinking! There is everywhere a pair of eyes which follows your steps carefully. And in the case someone takes a nap … another pair of eyes appears somewhere. Here one of them …Don’t think that he was sleeping. The sun was with him and in some way with me too – to achieve this shot…
