A FIRE FROM THE INSIDE – project by Romain Fabry
A FIRE FROM THE INSIDE
A photographic series taken in the forest of southwest France.
By Romain Fabry
This project intends to show the stunning contrast of this amazing place where the burning forest, saved by the hand of brave firefighters, meets the dune of Pilat. This wall of sand as a barrier to the worst, leaving us the calm of the horizon as an absolute.
Earth is on fire. The forest, heart of humanity, dressing this land with its great green coat, usually so calm, becomes the blaze of our lives. For several weeks, the sun will not set anymore, carrying away in smoke the certainties of an old world. A world where our frantic race for progress has left behind what we hold most dear, our home. Infinite desires in a limited world. And finally realize what many had refused to see. When nature catches fire, it’s all humanity that goes up in flames.
