Exhibition : Eagle Wings - Protecting the Alps, an artistic view of Europe’s glaciers in the face of climate change - 25/02/2020
The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation invites you to discover the exhibition "Eagle Wings - Protecting the Alps" by photographer Nomi Baumgartl, at the Galerie des Pêcheurs, in Monaco, until 30 March. This exhibition offers visitors a striking view from earth, sky and space of the melting glaciers in the Alps under the effects of climate change.
The exhibition leads us into a very original visual dialogue between the view from a Human perspective - with the photographer Nomi Baumgartl, the view through the eagle eyes - with its 360° camera, and the one of Science - with the images of the European Space Agency.
From the Earth, Nomi Baumgartl has immortalized incredible scenes from the Alpine region. Her photographs, charged with emotion and poetry, reveal the fragility of nature. From the sky, Victor, a white-tailed eagle, equipped with a 360° camera, filmed the glaciers, showing through exceptional images the extent of ice melting in Europe. Finally, from space, the satellites of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Earth Observation Center (EOC) offer a more global reality of earth's modifications linked to climate change.
The Eagle Wings - Protecting the Alps brings together five nature lovers : Jacques-Olivier Travers, Falconer - Ronald Menzel, Entrepreneur and Activist, co-founder of Dreamscape Immersive – Nomi Baumgartl, Photographer – Helmut Achatz, production manager and Karl Friedrich Scheufele, Co-President of Chopard. They came together to pay tribute to the planet, to document in an original way the impact of human activities on the environment but also to raise awareness of wildlife protection in order to inspire positive change.
The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is pleased to present, in the Principality, this exhibition which opens our eyes to the complex links between man and nature and the need to act in the face of the climate crisis.
