‘Ashes and Snow’ by Gregory Colbert
It’s out pleasure to introduce to you this unique and creative film-maker and photographer, Gregory Colbert from Canada.
Gregory is most known for his ongoing project called ‘Ashes and Snow’. The project consists photographic artworks, a one-hour film, and two short films ‘haikus’, and a novel in letters all presented in a purpose-built temporary structure called the Nomadic Museum.
Today we’re going to show you only the photographic artworks that we borrowed from his website. His art’s purpose is to reawaken an ancient memory of the time we as humans lived in balance with our animal kind. He began creating ‘Ashes and Snow’ back in 1922 and since then, he made expeditions to every continent to collaborate with more than one hundred spices around the world.
His work is astonishing because of his pure will to create something beautiful and light up the spark of our fires that once burned in people’s eyes. And that spark is called ‘freedom’. Check out his work and hold your breath, because you’re going to need it after.
