The artist

At the age of just 18, Olivier Föllmi obtained a scholarship to go to discover Afghanistan. This adventure outside of time decided his fate: until 1986, the French/Swiss photographer explored the Himalayas on foot, in love with the mountain and its population. On this occasion, he discovered the Zanskar, a Tibetan valley in India that was to become his adopted home. It also became the point of contact with two children of Himalayan farmers whose schooling he would later sponsor. The photographic report of their shared story won an award at the World Press Photo in 1991. The following year, he founded the association HOPE (Humanity Organisation for People and Education) in service to education worldwide. Olivier Föllmi relates his expeditions to distant lands in illustrated books and, recently, in a film. He is regularly solicited by prestigious media such as National Geographic, Paris Match, Geo, and Life, and his photography has been exhibited all over the world.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

"Photography is not a goal but a means of getting involved in the harmony of the world," declares Olivier F?llmi, who has spent a large part of his life exploring the remotest regions to capture their beauty and testify to the fate of humankind. He reveals what the media no longer does, in his opinion: showcasing world cultures and civilisations by photographing "worthy" men and women. We discover his travel photographs with fascination, adopting his point of view and marvelling at the world. "I press the shutter and experience a profound feeling of love." Peace of Mind Pagoda was taken in August 2015. It represents a pagoda captured at dusk and located on the flanks of the Sagaing mountain in Myanmar. During the photographer's stay in this region, he soaked up the beauty and tranquillity emanating from the many monasteries that adorn this mountain.

PEDRO JARQUE KREBS

Ferocious beauties isolated from all context, as though they had been captured in their most secret intimacy, this is the remarkable artistic gesture of Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque Krebs, restoring to the animals some of their stolen dignity. After studying philosophy at t...

ALFREDO SANCHEZ

Alfredo Sanchez was not predestined for photography. Born in Mexico in 1954, he studied law and took up a career in the private sector. “My free time was spent playing tennis, horse riding, and let’s not forget my favourite pastime: photography,” he says. Much later, towards the ...
