Arles 2020 day to day by Thierry Maindrault
The « Chapelle du Méjan”, is and remains an unmissable place of photography in Arles, with or without virus, with or without “Rencontres”. The very large room on the first floor welcomes in a very simple scenography the work of this documentary photographer who is Mario del Curto. The new publishing of his book devoted to biologic diversity:: “The Seeds of the World” around the work of the Vavilov Institute in Saint Petersburg supports this exhibition.
One hundred years after the first expedition of the great researcher Nikolai Vavilov, photographer Mario del Curto has returned to his tracks. He meets all people who continue his work for prospecting, for the selection and the preservation of food seeds on our planet. Many international scientists highlight the essential scope of his research. This book is the unpublished account of a four-year discovery journey through the heart of the Vavilov Institute and its twelve experimental stations.
This exhibition brings important knowledge to all those who care not only about ecology, but also about the type of agriculture which could solve the food problems of tomorrow.
