Yann Arthus-Bertrand


YellowKorner has the pleasure to integrate in its collection the "Celebrates Life" cross-disciplinary photographical selection of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, which will be exposed in YellowKorner galleries from 12th september to 20th october 2015.  Born in 1946 in Paris, Yann Arthus-Bertrand began a career in cinema as an assistant producer and as an actor. However, his passion for the animal world soon lead him first to become the director of a nature reserve in France and then to the Maasai Mara in Kenya, where he worked on his thesis, at the same time training as a hot-air balloon pilot. As a press report photographer, he has worked with magazines such as National Geographic, Géo, Life, Paris Match, and Figaro Magazine. In 1990, he completed his first documentary work combining photography and video in a project called Good Breeding. One year later, the artist and his team founded the photographic agency “Altitude”. In 1992, he decided to begin a huge photographic project that would cover the state of the world and its inhabitants – “Earth from Above”. Published in 1999, the associated book was an international success, selling over 4 million copies. In 2006, he enters in the Académie des Beaux-arts [French Academy of Fine Arts]. Since then, he has produced a number of projects aimed at increasing awareness of ecological and environmental issues, such as the well-known films Home (2009) and Planet Ocean (2012). His highly anticipated latest film Human is due to be released in September 2015.
