An exhibition of black and white animal and landscape photos in Africa.
Over the past 10 years Philippe Alexandre Chevallier has travelled all over 'wild' Africa and into the far flung corners of a continent that, for the time being, has been protected from the damage that Man inflicts on the world.
Chevallier images are a testimony of a fragile and potentially endangered world.
At time when the five continents gather together to try to limit global warming to 2° in the coming decades. Chevallier's photographs remind us that beyond our greenhouse gas emissions, our growing population, our voracious tourism, our armed conflict and our virtual world view, there is nature and a world of living things that have as much their place on this planet as we do. These images force us to open your eyes. The first humans stood up in Africa more than 4 million years ago. Her name was Lucy. Today man can destroy the land that he gave birth to can also choose to redeem it. These images are a rallying cry. Beautiful, necessary, vital - as fragile as a dream.
