Ashes & Snow: an incredible photo exhibit

If you are in or near New York City between now and June 6 2005, you should plan to visit "The Nomadic Museum" and treat your eyes and soul to one of the most beautiful and profound photo exhibitions in recent memory.

Gregory Colbert, a Canadian photographer/artist, has spent years on various photo exhibitions all over Planet Earth -- and this exhibit is the culmination of his efforts to present many endangered species in a unique context with their bipedal-domesticated primate friends -- otherwise known as "humans".

This exhibition is truly revolutionary in many ways: it includes a massive portable "museum" that will house the exhibition as it travels around the world; designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, this modular collection of exhibit rooms is made of containers that can be assembled and disassembled like the pieces of a Lego puzzle.

The exhibition also has a beautiful web site, and because of its simplicity of function and design, it should be a required visit for all who consider themselves "web site designers." (That would be about 250,000,000,000 semi-literate morons with a mouse and a modem...)

The web site contains a nice overview of the exhibition, a short bio on artist Colbert, and a sample gallery of these breathtaking photos.

One glance at any one of these pictures, and one has to wonder how puny, egotistical Humankind manages to assume a pose of superiority over these magnificent creatures who share our small dying, polluted planet.

Check it out; it might be the last time you're able to see these animal spirits in something other than a catalogue of vanished species.

(You might have missed the Passenger Pigeon, you can tell your grandkids that you once saw a photo of a real live leopard!)

this is an excellent piece, and i only wish i had read it before i went down to NYC just recently. But this provides me with incentive to return and go back. I was at the small Surrealist Museum - another tiny little gem in Manhattan. Will find the real name of it, but great place for talks, shows, exhibits etc.

You find the most intriguing things, Shark. And i agree with what you say about what we do to our planet and with whom we share it. I've always revered animals. Once, a native american Cree Chief gave me a preserved and sacred sparrowhawk that is intened to ward off evil. It dates back to the twenties and i've had him in a class case for years. Another native american gave me a bear's skull, also intended to protect the home, so i have a house of sacred objects. You would love it here, i think. So i'm with you - such a shame that we have destroyed and continue to destroy what was once truly beautiful. I wrote a long article about pollution for Orion magazine. We've ruined the ozone so much that in some places it is no thicker than the peel of an orange -- really, which raises the rates of lethal melanoma every year. I should know. I got it. How sad. Thanks for sharing this with us. This sounds worth seeing.

Thanks for this and, oh, you rock. ;)

"Fuck 'prayer'. Fuck 'petitioning the Lord'."

I see you've been listening to The Doors "Soft Parade" again. Best of luck with your health. And while I understand how BC seems like a waste of time, the laughs I've gotten from your responses haven't been. Hope you return soon because the people have more than one voice.
