Us, and Nature

Fisheye gallery exhibits the work of photographers Chloé Azzopardi, Alisa Martynova and Maxime Taillez, who were awarded the "Prix nouvelles écritures” of environmental photography at La Gacilly photo festival.

Alysa Martinova photographed African migrants who tried to reach Italy by boat, escaping conflicts and sexual, social or religious discrimination. About 4,400 of them died in the Mediterranean only in 2021, and most of the ones who made it suffered episodes of torture, slavery and rape along the way.

Photographer Maxime Taillez focused on the concept of borders, human constructions that create cultural and social divisions, when the natural environment knows none. Chloe Azzopardi created a metaphorical fable questioning the relationship between humans and animals, imagining new inter-species relationships that don’t see humans as superior beings.
