CORAIL photographic book

€59.00Price

CORAIL is a tribute to coral as an ecosystem essential to our survival. It tells the story of the rebirth of an Indonesian fishing village. Having become actors in the restoration of the coral reefs that surround them, these fishermen are today the guarantors of the safeguarding of their resources.

 

By staging strong, often spectacular images, this first book by Martin Colognoli, whose approach oscillates between the documentary and the artistic, is thus a hymn to the defense of biodiversity.
