Struggle for life

Tous les portfolios

Made famous by Charles Darwin in “The Origin of Species”, this expression is a perfect illustration of the survival problems now encountered by wild fauna in a world impacted by a harmful dominant species: Homo sapiens.

The Black & White photography in this portfolio represents different types of animals across the six continents. The animals that are most emblematic of wild fauna, such as the Elephant, the Polar Bear, the King Penguin, the Komodo Dragon, the Japanese Crane, the Rhinoceros, the Humpback Whale, the Abyssinian Wolf, and the Grizzly Bear, are showcased. The photographs in the exhibition were taken in natural settings.

Currently, 27.000 species disappear every year, 74 per day, 3 per hour. One animal or vegetal species is exterminated from our planet every 20 minutes!
