A colleague of mine suggested I look into the photography of Gregory Colbert. I had never heard of him before and was completely blown away by his unbelievable images.
He has much matured since then and his latest exhibition entitled, Ashes and Snow has been viewed by over 10 million people and is the most attended exhibition of a living artist in history.
Gregory says, “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.”In my own humble opinion, I think it is important to reflect back on a time centuries ago, when we were able to live symbiotically with nature and animals. Colonization and the progression of technology will never allow us/ Earth to go back to those simpler times but there are places in our world where this does and can exist.
I feel privileged to have found these photos and hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

The beauty of photography, dance, the written word, music etc. is the essence of interpretation.
One person’s genius can make another person believe.
