Beautiful work by Gregory Colbert. I recomend to see the images in the HTLM site rather than the flash site, this last is very nice but a bit too slow even with fast broadband connection. Since his debut in Venice in 2002, more than 1 million visitors have seen his work Ashes and Snow. The images are printed on Japanese washi paper. Gregory Colbert’s Ashes and Snow is an ongoing project that weaves together photographic works, 35mm films, art installations and a novel in letters. With profound patience and an unswerving commitment to the expressive and artistic nature of animals, he has captured extraordinary interactions between humans and animals.
“In exploring the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people lived in harmony with animals. The images depict a world that is without beginning or end, here or there, past or present.”—Gregory Colbert
