“I was in Spain until age 15 when I got kicked out of school. I wasn’t a bad kid. I just didn’t like authority. It wasn’t anything bad, I just didn’t want to go to school. I wanted to get out there and play soccer. My parents are French and my dad bought a big piece of land in the South of France where there weren’t any highways, freeways or trains. My dad, he’s a Forest engineer, so he likes the outdoors. I guess I got this passion through him. Leaving from Madrid, a big city to a house in the middle of nowhere with no neighbors was pretty extreme. I had to go to boarding school. There was nobody to play with on the weekend. All the kids from boarding school go back home, so everybody was pretty far away. I had a motorcycle and I used to get lost in the woods with a camera trying to take photos. So on the weekend when you go back home and there’s no neighbors, that’s how I started nature photography.” — Alex Strohl (*)
