Professionals at your service…

Gilles Martin has over 30 years’ experience in the field of producing, setting up, and hiring photographic exhibitions. His clients include the French Senate, the Museums of Natural History of Lille, Bordeaux, Tours, Nantes, and Bayonne, as well as the most prestigious international photography and nature festivals.
His network (graphic designers, editors, photo laboratories, and artisans) means that he can set up exhibitions for you on a turnkey basis.


Gilles Martin has spent 30 years splashing through ponds, marshes, and rivers to get close to, observe, and photograph the most stunning of insects in its natural environment : the dragonfly. His photographs form a real technical challenge and show all the features of these fascinating insects, of which the ancestors were up to… 70 centimetres long! Did you know that relative to their anatomy, these “marvels of the earth” have the most highly-developed eyeballs in creation? In spite of their appearance of scared nymphs, between 10 000 and 30 000 facets make them redoubtable killers. The exhibition is a documentary that is remarkably precise and exhaustive. Through photographs, illustrations, and drawings, it unveils all there is to know about the lives of these strange creatures.


A production in conjunction with a museum of natural history, a media library, a museum, a photography festival, or other structures can be considered for putting on the exhibition.


The exhibition presents the best images from the book “Les Libellules”, which can be sold at the event.


Please do not hesitate to contact us. A pamphlet is available that sets out all the technical details for setting up and transport, as well as the rates for hiring the exhibition.
