Philippe Echaroux is a photographer who projects giant faces into natural settings. Committed to the protection of minorities and the environment, Philippe has decided to put the power of his images at the service of peoples who are directly experiencing the consequences of climate change or the impact of external threats on their territories.
After a trip to the Himbas in the Namib desert, Philippe travelled to the cold lands of northern Europe, to meet the Sami people who, under pressure from the surrounding modern world, are fighting for their survival and that of their ancestral traditions.
For Philippe, these portraits, themselves projected and then re-photographed, are like a mise en abîme of a world where everything is interconnected: man, nature and the rest of the planet. With a single underlying message: let’s protect this common good that is so precious to us, and respect the people who live there.
