Many of you are probably familar with the Ashes & Snow exhibit that toured the world from 2005 till 2008 beginning in Venice and coming to New York and Santa Monica before travelling to Tokyo and Mexico City. I have been thinking about it from a design point of view because while I find the photographs visually stunning and inspiring I am also fascinated by the housing of the tour in the very crates it was shipped in as well as the books one can buy- the images are beautifully bound in Nepalese handmade paper and tea-stained rope that incorporate the respect for the humanity & the wildlife that Gregory Colbert's photography embodies.
I love how these images tell a story that is dreamlike and universal but at the same time very intimate and personal - inspiring!
Here is Gregory Colbert enjoying a moment with one of his models. This is the stuff that dreams are made of!
