Ashes and Snow

A truly transcendent, breathtakingly beautiful body of work! If you haven't already had a chance to experience Ashes and Snow, immerse yourself in Gregory Colbert's extraordinary project, and imagine how the world could be..

In exploring the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people saw themselves as part of nature and not outside of it. The destiny of whales cannot be separated from the destiny of man, and the destiny of man cannot be separated from the destiny of all of nature. I am exploring new narratives that help build a bridge across the artificial boundaries we have established between ourselves and other species.
— Gregory Colbert
