For more than 15 years, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, Thierry Suzan has devoted himself to photographing the polar worlds, placing ephemeral reality at the very heart of his quest. In his eyes, the fleeting moment becomes an echo of the living and the artist produces photographs of a rare intensity.
Under his lens, icebergs are transformed into works of land art; the peoples of the Far North, into the watchmen of a new era; and the colonies of penguins, into touching symbols of the still preserved wild beauty of the Far South.
The polar worlds push back the limits of men and dreams. They bear witness to a history that is as universal as it is millennial.
Thierry Suzan’s work is an encounter with a man who has found in the poles an irresistible force of attraction and an inexhaustible source of reflection on the place of man in his environment. An invitation to look at the imprints of time to reflect on our present and imagine our future.
