Ashes and Snow

In exploring the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people lived in harmony with animals. The images depict a world that is without beginning or end, here or there, past or present. - Artist's Statement

This amazing, multimedia project by Gregory Colbert is comprised (in part) of photography, film and a novel in letters. It is these dream-like, fantastic images of people interacting with animals that have really caught the attention and imagination of the blogosphere, though. I was literally reduced to tears browsing through the galleries. There's a lot to say about humanity and our relationship with the world, but it's all said better here.

That's amazing, and amazingly beautiful. So haunting, and beautiful, sad and inspirational all at the same time. Wow. Thanks for posting this. I wish I'd known about it when it was in Los Angeles; I'd have gone to see the exhibition.
