I just followed a link from another weblog to witness some of the most amazing photography I have ever seen in my life. As the website says:
Gregory Colbert has spent thirteen years filming and photographing elephants, whales, birds, and other animals in such places as India, Burma, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Namibia, Egypt, the island of Dominica, Tonga, and Antarctica. Ashes and Snow, Colbert's lifelong project, is a collaboration with animals in their natural habitat as they interact with human beings. His images attempt to remove the boundaries between humans and other species--to re-awaken in us an understanding of our shared animal nature.Do yourself a favor and check out the unbelievable (but 100% real) photography of Gregory Colbert and his Ashes and Snow exhibition at the Santa Monica Pier.
