I had the privilege to photograph the Beijing National Stadium, nicknamed The Bird’s Nest, at night during the 2008 Summer Olympics in China. As it happened a girl walking by wearing a red shirt. I photographed her as she was leaving the photo- telling me that the games were over, but will always be a fond memory and a beacon of reality of the past. There is an open door in the image, seemingly, open to our imagination, seeking what we may not have experienced but can imagine.

Klaus Bohn Artist Bio
After graduating from the University of Saskatchewan, I accepted various freelance photography assignments which led me to open my own studio in Moose Jaw in August of 1975. Happily the business became successful and I continued to take classes from esteemed photographers of my choice.
My mentor’s motto was: “If you want to learn more about photography, teach photography”. I took his advice and in 1984 started teaching photography skills and techniques to various studio owners and some of their staff members.
In 2000 I moved to Victoria B.C. and opened a photography studio with my two talented sons. In 2006 I began writing and, at present, have published 5 books.
I now work out of my home studio and have the opportunity of traveling to 3rd world countries. Photography is my profession. I love what I do and having the opportunity of meeting so many great photographers from around the world gives me a life full of joy that I enjoy sharing with others…
My brand is “feeling more deeply about photography”!
