Work of Vincent Munier at FLAT // LAND, Paris Photo
October 18, 2023
FLAT // LAND is extremely proud to bring to Paris Photo the work of the great French wild life photographer and filmer Vincent Munier (Épinal, 1976). Munier has traveled to the remotest corners of the world to encounter animal species such as the snowy owl, the musk ox, the brown bear, and the wild yak. These phantasmagorical creatures, inaccessible to the average mortal, offer themselves to his lens in their most natural state of being. Often cryptic they have adapted to their own environments. For us humans these convey desolateness and hardship. For the animals its their acceptance of fate.
Munier is one of the most known wild life photographers from France. He just finished his powerful hymn to the land of the snow leopard in Tibet, the film ‘The Velvet Queen” (directed by Marie Amiguet) that was selected for the 74th edition of the Festival de Cannes for its ephemeral selection of films on the environment (Cinema for the climate).
To celebrate and inaugurate Munier’s newest monograph, the artist will sign his NEW book ‘ VINCENT MUNIER’ at PARIS PHOTO. A retropespective of 35 years of photography with 320 pages.
