This project started in the Himalaya of India in 2012, and soon will continue in the Andes.
It is an observation of the modernization of life style, of the transformations of human relationship with each others, and of the climate and environemental changes.
What are the transformations observed in the past 20 years?
How do the people of the Andes perceive the changes in their environment?
Today, what is their relationship to their environment?
These transformations touch each and every one of us on planet earth. For some people, it contributes to enhancing their quality of life, yet for others today and eventually for all of us, these changes are fragilizing our existence.
Today, the survival of certain communities depends entirely on the products from earth. Those people are directly affected by the climate, the pollution and the modernism.
Far away for all medias, the villagers are very much willing to express their observations, hopes and concerns about those changes. But who is listening?
This journey will be an exploration, a synthesis of photography and dialogues with people living in isolated areas of the Andes.
For this project, the photographer will be looking for answers to the following questions:
• what are the changes observed today? (climate, education, way of thinking and living)
• How do these changes influence their daily lives?
• What are the main consequences?
• From their point of view, what are the reasons for this and do they think of a solution?
The photographs will illustrate scenes of daily life, the homes and landscapes of the area and portraits of people interviewed ;The older and the young ones expressing and describing the changes, the hopes and fear across generations.
