Klaus is a committed member of the international wildlife photography community.
As a former president of GDT (the association of German wildlife photographers) he founded the International Nature Photo Festival 20 years ago in his hometown Luenen, Germany, and still he very much enjoys lecturing at photo festivals all over the world.
Klaus is a fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers ILCP.
The photo exhibition dedicated to the Caribbean Flamingo or Flamingo American who lives along the coasts of Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico, Cuba, Haiti and the shores of the Galapagos Islands is the result of a work commissioned by the prestigious photographic magazine "National Geographic".
Klaus Nigge had to travel several times to the Yucatan Peninsula to document the full annual cycle in the life of these birds.
The images on display show us moments of life of flamingos, in its preferred habitats such as salt marshes, salt lakes, shallow, brackish lagoons and mud flats along the coast and inland, expertly shot with lights and atmospheres. To offer us a different perspective are also the images taken from the plane that give us an overview of the colonies and at the same time a nice graphic scene.
