Presented by the gallery ARGENTIC, Olivier Grunewald’s first retrospective showcases the beauty of the Earth, its energy and the extreme richness of its biodiversity.
The 45 images presented at the exhibition ORIGINES are the result of more than thirty years of work. They tell the story of the formation of the Earth and the appearance of life.
The landscapes that draw our Earth today and the multitude of creatures that populate it make us forget the time it took to forge a generous planet, ready to welcome Man. By relentlessly drawing on natural resources, the latter has, in a few centuries, brutally accelerated the destruction of natural environments.
Here we are faced with a very sad paradox: never has nature been so well understood and never has it been so threatened. The exhibition ORIGINES celebrates biodiversity, but also its fragility.
For thirty years, Olivier Grunewald has traveled the wildest spaces on the planet. Inspired by the American school, Ansel Adams, David Muensh or Galen Rowell, Grunewald undertakes a long work across North America and Australia, making his photos in large format.
The photobook of the same title brings together 150 photographs by Grunewald for a 4.5 billion-year journey in search of the origins of life.
