Maëwenn Bourcelot – Les éternels éphémères


Maëwenn Bourcelot – Les éternels éphémères

Diploma project by Maëwenn Bourcelot

Myriads of small winged creatures have silently disappeared in the past twenty-seven years. In the blink of an eye, the decline of pollinators seems to herald the gloomy nightmare of a devastated biosphere. “Eternal Ephemerals” is a photographic essay, a subjective investigation that seeks to understand the complex causes that contribute to colony collapse disorder. This quest leads me to meet various actors who in their endeavour to preserve nature’s balance, attest to the profound vulnerability of mankind in the face of this tragedy.
