Ashes and Snow

Gregory Colbert, a Canadian born photographer/film maker traveled the world to photograph and film the interactions between humans and animals. Ashes and Snow premiered in Venice in 2002 and has been traveling as part of the Nomadic Museum since  attracting over 10 million viewers.

In exploring the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people saw themselves as part of nature and not outside of it. The destiny of whales cannot be separated from the destiny of man, and the destiny of man cannot be separated from the destiny of all of nature. I am exploring new narratives that help build a bridge across the artificial boundaries we have established between ourselves and other species.
