The Santa Monica catalogue gathers all the photographic artworks on display at the Santa Monica exhibition in 2005 as well as more than one hundred additional images from the"Ashes and Snow "collection.
Since 1992, Gregory Colbert has been filming and photographing elephants, whales, manatees, eagles, orangutans, and other animals on more than thirty expeditions to such places as Egypt, Burma, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Ethiopia, Namibia, Tonga, the Azores, Antarctica, and Borneo. His images explore wondrous interactions between man and animal dissolving the boundaries between humans and other species. Gregory Colbert's photographic artworks capture extraordinary moments of contact between man and animal. None of the images have been digitally collaged or superimposed; they record what the artist himself saw through the lens of his camera.
