Ashes and Snow

I found these rather remarkable images over at 10th Village, this is an interesting blog site where unusual and arresting images can be found, as they say  10th Village is where photographers , art enthusiasts and trendspotters connect over personal ideas.

Ashes and Snow by Canadian artist Gregory Colbert is an installation of photographic artworks, films, and a novel in letters that travels in the Nomadic Museum, a temporary structure built exclusively to house the exhibition. The work explores the shared poetic sensibilities of human beings and animals. Ashes and Snow has traveled to VeniceNew YorkSanta MonicaTokyo, and Mexico City. To date, Ashes and Snow has attracted more than 10 million visitors, making it the most attended exhibition by a living artist in history.

The project states: “No longer shown as merely a member of the family of man, humans are seen as a member of the family of animals.”
