In the Heart of the Dark Night

In the Heart of the Dark Night

A keen observer of the animal world and a pioneer of wildlife photography, George Shiras was also the first, at the turn of the 20th century, to reveal the nocturnal lives of forest animals through surprising flash photographs. From mobile shots on his canoe to photographic tricks he developed (when the animal triggers itself the shot by running into a thread), he was able to capture deers, lynx, porcupines, and various birds.

This monographic premiere in an intimist format presents a selection of these photographs, enhanced by a poetic essay by philosopher and writer Jean-Christophe Bailly.
