À propos de l'exposition À propos de l'artiste
This exhibit invites you on a visual journey along the breathtaking coastline of British Columbia, stretching from the city Vancouver to the remote and wild Alaskan border.
Join us to explore the untamed beauty and wilderness of this amazing region, where the majestic Pacific Ocean meets lush forests, pristine shores, dramatic landscapes and where bears, whales and other wildlife call this coastal paradise their home.
Experience the wonder of British Columbia, framed in the artistry of photography.
Hi! I'm Julien-Olivier "Jok" Koch, a 35 year old wildlife and landscape photographer originally from Lyon, France. I moved to Vancouver, BC back in 2013 to live close to the mountains and the ocean.
I've always had a love for animals and first started taking pictures when my dad gifted me a camera.
I would go out in the forests and mountains to capture birds, squirrels, bears, and whatever else I could find. I realized that I really enjoy capturing beautiful moments and places. I also love the solitude and peace of remote areas.
In the past couple of years, I've spent more and more time on the ocean allowing me to witness more of what the BC coast has to offer.
Spending time outdoors and exploring new locations is really what makes me happy. One day I hope to make it full time and be able to live from photography.
I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I like taking them.
Each year, Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver is proud to present five exhibitions of the works of talented francophone and francophile artists from British Columbia, and sometimes from other provinces. These exhibitions give sculptors, painters, photographers and multidisciplinary artists the opportunity to showcase their work professionally in the library of Le Centre for 1-2 months.
Each exhibition opens with a public wine and cheese reception, free of charge, where visitors can meet and talk to the artist.
Current exhibitions can be visited during the regular opening hours at Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver.
