I found the buildings in Prague to be particularly interesting. The photos I took inspired me to express the feeling, as a painter might have painted it many years ago. I also wanted to show the photo as a pencil sketch for a companion piece – ‘Two visions of how an artist centuries before may have shown this part of the city’. What you see is a combination of my imagination coupled with my photography and photoshop skills.
I believe that what we feel and see in our imagination creates ART. Art is not just pretty photos or drawings but that which is revealed from within.

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”!
