Roeselien Raimond is a Dutch photographer with a huge passion for anything that lives. Her main interest is nature, from tiny water drops, fascinating insects, hidden treasures, beautiful scenery to exotic animals… She also love to take photographs of people, no matter if they’re willingly modeling or just passing by, as long as they’re interesting … Out of thousands of beautiful photographs, her Fox in the snow photo was selected to be one of the finalist in the Dutch National Geographic Competition 2012.
Of her work with the foxes, Roeselien says that she is propelled into taking pictures by her love of storytelling. “I think I’m just a fan of the more complex, layered characters. (…) Every fox has his own character, which keeps me fascinated.” She’s been studying these characters of the wild for years now and is convinced that “They have a free will, just like us, and where some other animals might have more predictable routines, foxes are quite spontaneous. You never know if you will find them sleeping or hunting… or if you’re going to find them at all. (…) With foxes, every day is a surprise, which makes photographing them both extremely frustrating and highly exciting. And it’s what keeps me coming back for more.”
