Gregory Colbert - Ashes & Snow

Gregory Colbert

“When I started Ashes and Snow in 1992, I set out to explore the relationship between man and animals from the inside out. In discovering the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards restoring the common ground that once existed when people lived in harmony with animals.” Gregory Colbert

Gregory Colbert was born in 1960 in Toronto, Canada. He is a film-maker and acclaimed photographer probably best known for his extraordinary exhibition "Ashes & Snow". The images are mesmerizing! They show people in a very intimate relationships with animals. The exhibition which is housed in the Nomadic Museum in Z√≥calo, Mexico, is destined to travel the world without a final destination.
