Yann Arthus=Bertrand -EARTH FROM ABOVE-

Flash Area.

Exhibition ended on June 27, 2007 (Wed).

An exhibition of selected photographs from Yann Arthus-Bertrand's EARTH FROM ABOVE project is being held at the "PHOTO IS" gallery on the first floor of the FUJIFILM new head office between Friday, June 1 ? Wednesday, June 27, 2007.

Born in France in 1946, Yann Arthus-Bertrand worked at a nature reserve in central France, before moving to Africa at the age of 30 to study the lifestyle and ecology of lions. While in Africa, Yann took a ride in a hot-air balloon--an experience that was to change his life. He gained a whole new perspective on the beauty of the world, and from that time on, he has spent his life traveling around the world taking aerial photographs. In 1995, Yann's EARTH FROM ABOVE project was launched with the support of UNESCO. FUJIFILM has also been a long-time supporter of this project.

Through his aerial photographs, Yann is able to portray the great outdoors, aspects of human culture and a variety of perspectives of the earth that the ordinary person is never able to experience. His photographs are filled with a power and beauty only possible with aerial photographs. Yann's photographs also capture the actual situation regarding the global environment, and express Yann's deep concern and love for the planet.

The exhibition presents approximately 50 carefully selected photographic works from Yann's vast body of thousands of photographs. The photographs were taken with Fujifilm's reversal film, Fujichrome, and printed on high quality silver halide prints. These wonderful photographs fully express the breathtaking beauty and the magnificent grandeur of nature, and invite us to think once again about the importance of preserving our precious global environment.
