When I was 15, my good friend Olivia and I went to see an exhibition in Santa Monica, CA. It was Gregory Colbert's "Ashes and Snow". As I was getting more into music and film, and Olivia into visual arts and journalism, it was extremely inspiring to both of us.
Ashes and Snow is an ongoing work that involves photography, film and writing that show animals and humans together. There's a lot to discuss in his work, and many different ways to see it, but all I want to do is share a link to this video. I hadn't seen it for a long time, and it still takes my breath away.
