THE 1ST EXHIBITION

'WINDOW ON THE SEA'

The 1st edition of The Nomadic Exhibition is thrilled to present "Window on the sea." An immersive photo series at the center of seascapes draws public attention to protecting the sea, an alternative to pollution awareness. The Mediterranean sea is the starting point of several great civilizations; this intercontinental sea, surrounded by imposing reliefs where the winds swirl and the weather changes in the blink of an eye, is the most polluted in the world. This eternal sea which has allowed commercial and cultural exchange between the people of the region, this capricious sea which has played an essential role in the origin and development of Western civilization, constitutes one of the significant reservoirs of marine and coastal biodiversity. Let's preserve it!
