Photographic exhibition: Discovering the last Eden

This exhibition of photographs by Evrard Wendenbaum features some twenty panels measuring 60cm x 90cm, beautifully printed on aluminium dibond. The photos have been selected for their high quality and the subjects they present. Each image is accompanied by a caption to help you learn more about a particular area. They cover biodiversity, geology, archaeology and local life, and present the massif from a number of angles.

Synopsis :

Made up of hundreds of intricate canyons, the Makay massif is one of nature’s most monumental works of art. Completely unexplored, this extraordinary and virtually unknown mountain range of Madagascar is one of the most inaccessible points on the globe. Its valleys, several hundred metres deep, have isolated ecosystems and animal and plant species that have been unique in the world for millions of years.
The photographs in this exhibition come from five expeditions (scientific missions to inventory biodiversity and exploration missions) to this rugged terrain, which have led to some major discoveries, including many new species and the very first decorated caves in Madagascar.
