Yann Arthus-Bertrand has been interested in nature and wildlife since early age.
In 1976 he moved to Kenya. He lived amongst the Maasai tribe for 3 years to study the behaviour of lions’ family and took daily pictures of them during those years. He thus discovered a new passion for photography and the beauty of landscapes when observed from above in hot air balloons. He understood the power of image and how to communicate using this means.
He discovers the world from the sky, and engages in aerial photography because it reveals another reality of a territory and its resources.
He is the author of famous documentaries Home and Human, which premiered in Yerevan respectively in 2009 and 2015, in the framework of the SunChild 5th International Environmental Festival.
