Ashes and Snow
“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, Creator of Ashes and Snow
Gregory Colbert is a Canadian based artist who has spent years traversing the globe in hopes of capturing the profound interaction between humans and animals. Since he began creating his work of Ashes and Snow in 1992, Colbert has undertaken photographic and filming expeditions to locations such as India, Egypt, Burma, Tonga, Sri Lanka, Namibia, Kenya, Antarctica, the Azores, and the Borneo.
Today it is the most attended exhibition by a living artist in history, with over 10 million visitors to date.
