An excerpt of the photographic exhibition “Coral reefs, a challenge for humanity” will be displayed in Tahiti, French Polynesia, in celebration of the International Year Of the Reef 2018.
The exhibition will present the work of journalist Alexis Rosenfeld and photographer Alexis Rosenfeld and highlights the beauty of these jewels of biodiversity and the importance of preserving all coral reefs.
The images will be displayed in 2 meters high triptych structures and will offer the visitors the opportunity to visually immerse themselves in the little-known world of coral reefs.
The exhibition is associated with French Polynesia’s Science Fest, a French celebration for the dissemination and promotion of science. This year, French Polynesia’s Science Fest is entirely dedicated to coral reefs.
Photographer and diver Alexis Rosenfeld used special techniques to show underwater landscapes in their beauty, their dimensions and the importance they have for all of us. The large images invite you to take a walk underwater, as QR codes give access to texts, and filmed interviews, reports and 360° photos via smartphones.
