Yann Arthus-Bertrand has given me permission to use his photographs on my site. As much as Yann is an amazing photographer he is also an active advocate for ecological issues. He is the chairman of the GoodPlanet Organization and has participated in the creation of the Action Carbone project in order to persuade governments, institutions and individuals to reduce their individual impact on the climate.
(also referred to as Yab as in Yann Arthus-Bertrand) started a project called "Earth from above" to survey the state of the Earth as we went into the 21st century.
site Yab states:
"Year 2000 was almost upon us, and I wanted to tackle an ambitious long-term project. Since the lions, nature has been one of my chief concerns, though I was then less committed to sustainable development and more interested in the preservation of exceptional sites. However, working on location soon made me realise that Man cannot be dissociated from the landscape. Gradually, I became convinced that supporting the theories on sustainability was the way towards a reasoned form of development.”
Yab also photographs people and animals. I love his animal shots.
sites and see what they are all about. If you do contact them please let them know where you saw the photos. The more we do this the more likely it is that photographers will consent to the use of their photos for non-commercial blogs. It is about spreading the word.
An exhibit of Yann's work will be at the New York Public Library starting on April 1st. 2010
Remember bloggers...never use someones photos without their permission.
