March 1, 2021, Belgium: A man who escaped the Rwandan genocide as a child now finds peace through photographing squirrels. ..In 1990, Niki Colemont was just four when he and his sister fled to Belgium as refugees. His mother had died in childbirth and his father stayed behind to fight in the war. Tragically, his dad died in the conflict, leaving the children as orphans. His sister would pass away in 2019 at just 38-years-old. ..Now, at 34, Niki is able to find inner peace by photographing squirrels, both feeding and interacting with humorous props and mini sets. ..Niki says he first was inspired to pick up a camera after visiting his girlfriend’s grandmother’s home. He explains: “I was looking through the window when I saw a little bird flying out of the nest searching for food. It was really fascinating to watch. From that moment I knew that I wanted to do more in nature photography. ..“When I am in nature, I don’t think about troubles. The squirrels, they are like humans. If you have an idea that you want to create, they can help you with that. They are the perfect models. ..“Nature gives me more joy and a clear head. Photographing people is a lot of stress and you need to perform on a higher level. In nature and wildlife there is no pressure. ..“The thing that most inspires me is that you can’t expect what will happen next, it’s always a surprise. Also, in nature I can clear my mind: run far from the madding crowd. ..“I had no formal education. I learned everything through trial and error. Patience is highly recommended. It’s also important to study your subject before you go in the field. ..“Spending time in the wild is one of the best therapies you can have.”..Where: Belgium.When: 01 Mar 2021.Credit: Niki ColemontCover-Images.com..**MANDATORY CREDIT: Niki ColemontCover-Images.com.
