Documentary by award-winning French photographer Franck Vogel

For over five centuries, the Bishnoi community of Rajasthan has been living in harmony with nature and wildlife in India. They have made wildlife conservation and environmental protection their life’s work, protecting trees and wildlife, in particular the Blackbuck antelopes. The age-old Bishnoi ethos, as presented in this documentary by award-winning French photographer Franck Vogel, points us toward new practices and innovative ways of treating our threatened world environment.

Franck Vogel is a photographer focusing on global social and environmental issues whose work focuses on the relationship between humanity and nature in an effort to illustrate that it's possible to live in harmony. His photographs have won numerous awards and been featured in publications such as GEO Magazine, Le Monde, and Paris Match. For more information see
