JUNGLE SPIRIT RETROSPECTIVE
Jungle Spirit is the fruit of a long photographic investigation project which started in 2004 in Amazonia (Peru), and then continued in Borneo (Malaysia & Brunei) and Africa (Uganda). This large format photographic exhibition represents the spirit and essence of the world’s most beautiful jungles in Asia, Africa and South America. The exhibition highlights the incredible richness of the rainforests and raises awareness of the importance and beauty of the planet’s wildlife heritage. Its goal is to present a wide variety of species that are difficult to get near to, due to their rarity and their environment.
Acting like a guide, the exhibition transports the visitor into the heart of the planet’s “lungs”. It enables a diverse audience (educational teams, children, nature lovers, etc.) to discover a wide range of little-known species and to learn about this fascinating world. The exhibition also stimulates our sense of ecocitizenship, inviting reflection on the planet’s future and the changes we need to make in our lifestyles in order to preserve it.
