Musée Internationale de la Parfumerie
19 May → 30 Nov 2021
Every day from 10am to 7pm (summer)
Pierre Escoubas is a photographer who highlights the diversity and beauty of the fauna and flora that accompany us in our daily lives. This translates into photographs of insects and animals on a white background, taken from their natural environment. A refined work which, in the end, places the small creatures in their ecosystem, since the photographs are exhibited in the museum's gardens. These large formats make us aware of the fragility of these little creatures that we don't necessarily notice but which are nonetheless there. The aim of this exhibition is to present the microfauna and flora of the region. A series that joins the initiative proposed by two Anglo-Saxon photographers through the "Meet Your Neighbours" project launched in 2009. The aim of this project is to highlight the local flora and fauna by bringing together an international group of photographers that Pierre Escoubas joined in 2014. Much more than a photographer, Pierre Escoubas presents himself as a scientist, reporter and educator who passes on his knowledge and raises awareness of the harmful effects of human activity on these species. These sobering photographs are no less powerful, as the shapes, colours and textures are so different. Tickets available on site.
