Living in harmony with the living world

02 february 2018 by Olivier Grunewald

As the first movement for the protection of nature and the environment, France Nature Environnement has been fighting for 50 years to allow us to live in harmony with the living world. Our movement has therefore naturally joined the ORIGINES exhibition. By seizing the splendors of nature, these photographs are a strong call for engagement to protect our breathtaking natural heritages, which are, here and elsewhere, essential to our survival.

Photography speaks the universal language of emotion

02 february 2018 by Olivier Grunewald

Images have always been central to Le Figaro Magazine since its creation in 1978. Photographs inform, shed light, and speak the universal language of emotion. The great names of photo-reporting have captured the brutal events and tragedies of the times for our readers, but they have also depicted moments of happiness and nuggets of progress. Olivier Grunewald is one of those people: as one of the magazine’s travel companions, he has recounted our planet’s natural upheavals. With ORIGINES, Olivier shows how humans must learn to find their way back to the heart of nature. We can only accompany him, once again, through this exhibit, at a time when our ecosystem is threatened, now more than ever.

Volcanoes have given us the natural mineral water of Volvic

02 february 2018 by Olivier Grunewald

Volvic is rooted in the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Park, at the heart of a preserved ecosystem of 3800 hectares of forest and moorland. The raindrops that fall on this impluvium are filtered through 6 layers of volcanic rock for more than 5 years. The water’s mineral composition changes as it comes into contact with the rock. It acquires a specific taste, unique to Volvic mineral water. This water is protected from pollution and is naturally pure. It therefore does not require further treatment and is never touched by human hands. Volvic is committed to preserving this unique natural heritage as it works hand in hand with the Environmental Committee for the Protection of the Volvic Impluvium. Supporting the ORIGINES exhibition and Olivier Grunewald’s work is a direct echo to our mission as mineral water providers as we strive to protect the Volvic resource forever.

As an agency creating editorial and image-based content, Citizen Press supports a hundred public, private and non-profit groups in their implementation of communication strategies. The ORIGINES exhibition resonates in a particular way. The aesthetic strength of Olivier Grunewald’s photography can only fascinate us, as visual professionals ourselves. By making us see and understand our planet’s beauty and fragility, the message ORIGINES conveys is dear to us: we must all act urgently to stop the destruction of our environment. In this way, ORIGINES is a civic project which we are proud to support!

Telling incredible stories and examining ecological issues.

The Paulsen publishing house is dedicated to adventure. It travels all over the world publishing the accounts of writers, giving a voice to explorers and scientists such as Jean-Louis Étienne, Fridtjof Nansen and Claude Lorius. The values of these thinkers align with our own and surpass time: they include tenacity, courage and an interest in others. Biographies and hard cover art books are released. Our authors and photographers are all connected by their common passion: to explore and understand our planet, the very one that existed yesterday, today and for ages to come.
