Dedicated to the diversity and originality of the world’s cultures seen through traditional local celebrations, ETHNOCOLOR is a project reflecting the shimmering and multicolored richness and variety of these ancestral traditions.
The ETHNOCOLOR exhibit expresses a global vision of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity that UNESCO tends to protect.
This exhibition presents more than 100 varieties of traditional celebrations through 30 countries across 5 continents.
Within these various documentary photographs, I have therefore tried to reveal the peculiarities of these far-flung festivities and to immortalise their local customs.
Attempting to promote the immense cultural diversity of these peoples takes root in one sole purpose: to raise awareness of these nature and the richness of worldwide heritages that are nowadays often in danger.
After having rubbed shoulders with locals and understood their pride to practise their ancestral rites, it felt essential to me to make people share the human aspects hidden behind these patches of costumes that I have often discovered in rough places and arid surrounding lands.
