As part of its role to raise awareness and inform the public about the environment and sustainable development, the Department of the Environment is hosting a photographic exhibition on climate change entitled “A l’écoute du peuple groenlandais” at the Galerie des Pêcheurs from 20th October 2010 to 3rd January 2011.
Featuring 28 photographs taken by Nathalie and Alain Antognelli, a professional couple of photographers from Monaco, the exhibition illustrates their expeditions along the coastline of Greenland by kayak.
“The aim of our trips is to discover the wonderful people of Greenland as closely as possible and to share their daily lives. For over a century, these people who live in extreme conditions, have been experiencing profound changes to their lifestyle and are now experiencing the direct impact of climate change” says Nathalie Antognelli.
“This beautiful photographic voyage offers us magnificent landscapes and an opportunity to find out more about the people, their way of life and their traditions. Strong images that plunge us into a fascinating reality” points out Cyril Gomez, Director of the Environment. He adds: “the exhibition also makes us think about the impact of climate change on an increasingly vulnerable region of the world and which affects the lives of the people and their environment a little more every day”.
