I was born, and now

I'm in the midst of living.

We are just people.



Coy G. Koehler is a photographer and a poet, who is currently hiding in a very small town of Wisconsin.

He is a college graduate with a Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire. After graduation, he had tipped his hat goodbye and went on an extensive two month road trip across America. But when he found his pockets empty, Coy decided to hang his hat in Los Angeles and settle down, sort of.

It was a wild time for Coy, sleeping in his friend’s kitchen for a year, and then with a hobo’s brilliance, he made a move to purchase more camera equipment and live the high life free… in his van. Without the domestic chains of an everyday clink-and-drag, he roamed the alleys of Downtown LA, the bars of Hollywood, and the wilds of California with his camera. Three years later, Coy had finally found a concrete place to hang his hat. He then gave Los Angeles eleven more years of shooting for fashion designers, actors, musicians, and television.

Coy started to feel the free wind blowing again, so he packed it all up and tipped his hat goodbye, this time to the City of Angels. Presently, Coy is living simply and thankful in the rural area of Marshfield, Wisconsin as he sows and reaps his photography and poetry for everyone to enjoy.

See! Oh, why?
