Gregory Colbert - Ashes and Snow

"They live as if they will never die,
And die as though they had never lived."
 
 
My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,

That I may meditate on your promises.

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth;

Meditate on it day and night,
so that you may be careful to do everything written in it.

Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood
and speak truthfully to his neighbor,
for we are all members of one body.
"In your anger do not sin":

Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,
and do not give the devil a foothold.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love.

Commit your way to the LORD;

Trust in him and he will do this.

Instead, be kind to each other,

Tenderhearted, forgiving one another,

Just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

You have searched me and you know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise;

You perceive my thoughts from afar.

You discern my going out and my lying down;

You are familiar with all my ways.

Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely,

O LORD.

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth;

Meditate on it day and night,

So that you may be careful to do everything written in it.

Then you will be prosperous and successful.

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels,

but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

 
 
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven
 
 
 
 
 

 “When I started Ashes and Snow in 1992,
I set out to explore the relationship between man and animals from the inside out.”

?Gregory Colbert



Canadian-born artist Gregory Colbert began his career in Paris making documentary films about social issues.
Filmmaking led to his work as a fine arts photographer, and the first public exhibition of his work was held in
1992 at the Mus?e de l’Elys?e in Switzerland.

For the next ten years, Colbert showed no films and exhibited none of his art. Instead, he travelled to such places
as India, Burma, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Dominica, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tonga, Namibia and Antarctica to film and
photograph wondrous interactions between human beings and animals.

In 2002, he launched the Ashes and Snow exhibition in Italy at the Venice Arsenale,
a 125,000-square-foot 15th-century shipyard owned by the Italian navy. It was the largest solo exhibition ever
mounted in Italy. With the opening of Ashes and Snow in New York on the Hudson River’s Pier 54, the first-ever
Nomadic Museum was born. The show, for which Colbert received the 2005 Curator of the Year Lucie Award,
was attended by more than 500,000 people during its three-month run

Colbert continues his expeditions and the development of Ashes and Snow.


 

다큐멘터리 영화 감독에서 시작해 사진 작가로 그 활동 범위를 넓힌 Gregory Colbert는

13년 동안 이집트, 인도, 버마, 스리랑카, 에티오피아, 나이비아, 탕가 등 31개국을 여행하면서

코끼리, 고래, 해우, 팔콘 등이 인간과 교류하고 교감하는 모습을 필름과 사진으로 담아

Ashes and snow라는 제목으로 2002년 이태리 베니스에서 가장 큰 개인전을 열면서 세계적으로 인정 받게 되었다.
2005년 Lucie Award 수상.
동물들에게 해가 가지 않도록 산소 호흡기 조차 휴대 하지 않고 작업을 했던 그였기에

이렇게 놀라운 장면들을 담아 낼 수 있었던 것으로 보여진다.
