About this book

Language: French

Mythical place, the primary forest, the famous virgin forests without any trace of human activity, is THE place of the symbolic origins of humanity. Extending from boreal to Mediterranean areas, equatorial jungle to tropical forests, the authors take us on a journey to the very sources of life. Here, in these havens of biodiversity, the living take the most unexpected forms, the most vibrant colors. Here, man finds his dimension: it is alive among the living. Régine Rosenthal has traveled all continents to bring us her incredible photographs, her huge portraits of trees or prehistoric ferns. Through her photographs, time stops. We are no longer in a book, but for the first time, face the same place of our origin ...

Summary in French:

Des étendues boréales aux espaces méditerranéens, de la jungle équatoriale aux forêts tropicales, les auteurs nous convient à un voyage aux sources mêmes de la vie. Ici, dans ces paradis de la biodiversité, le vivant prend les formes les plus inattendues, les couleurs les plus chatoyantes. Ici, l'homme retrouve sa dimension : il est vivant parmi le Vivant. Déjà auteur chez Privat du livre Biodiversité, Madagascar, l’Eden fragile, Régine Rosenthal a parcouru tous les continents pour nous rapporter ses photographies inouïes, ses portraits d'arbres immenses ou de fougères préhistoriques. Au fil de ses photographies, le temps s'arrête. Nous ne sommes plus dans un livre mais, pour la première fois, confrontés au lieu même de notre origine...
