Conservation Photography is a new part of photography, aimed at nature conservation initiatives. The contribution of photography in conservation is making pictures useful in scientific research, environmental documentation, or activities to raise consciousness on priority ecological themes.
Alberto Cambone and Roberto Isotti, photographers and founders of Homo ambiens, have been actively engaged for many years in Conservation Photography, even before its public recognition. Our works are often taken with the help of NGO, local Organizations or Foundations that protect natural area.
We create personal and self-initiated photography and multimedia projects.
We collaborate with publishers, NGO, foundations and Parks management offices to tell the natural world in an innovative, original, ethic way.
We trust that photography can help actively to increase global sensitive towards biodiversity, habitat preservation issues, for a new relationship between men and nature.
Homo ambiens is an initiative based in Rome which aims through photography to share the beauty of Nature and explore how the environmental complexity regulates life on Earth. We pursue the human guest to live in harmony with the natural environment. Founded in 1993, Homo ambiens shows a photographic panorama of the state of our planet.
After Homo abilis who was able to make the first instruments, Homo erectus who had the ability to move on back art and Homo sapiens who slowly reaches conscious of the surrounding world, finally Homo ambiens should be able to go back to be part of nature and live in harmony with his ambient, without give up improvements guaranteed by technology progress and the advantages of evolution.
