Animals and plants in Galapagos, a cradle of evolution/h3>

The Galapagos Islands are located in the East Pacific under Ecuadorian territory, and has a unique ecosystem that underwent millions of years of evolution without human interference. The islands are called a “living museum of natural history” and are also well known for having influenced the theory of evolution by Charles R. Darwin. A photojournalist named Gwon Jeongho took pictures of the endangered animals and plants in the Galapagos Islands, capturing some rare animals and plants such as slow moving Galapagos Tortoises, iguanas swimming in the sea, and Blue-footed Boobies, as well as the landscape of the islands, which were formed by volcanic activities.

Tribespeople in the Amazon living on the border between civilization and nature

Do Yongbok, a remote trekker actively dedicated to writing and lecturing, tells the story of tribal people in the Amazon coexisting with nature. The photographer shows a variety of photos introducing the lifestyles of tribes living in and around the Amazon River: the Berwanno tribe living on the border between civilization and nature, the Shipibo tribe while holding a treatment ritual, and the Arbaud tribe which consists entirely of women. The photos show the gradual metamorphosis of the minority ethnicities living in the Amazon that seldom have contact with modern society. The detailed descriptions make one contemplate how precious the environment on Earth truly is.

An exhibition thinking of the coexistence of nature with human

The photo exhibition titled “Nature & Human –Go to Galapagos and Amazon” offers a bulletin board to visitors so they can written their emotions following appreciating the photos and a photo zone where they can be taken pictures against the background of Galapagos animals and Amazon tribal people. The exhibition will give both adults and children alike a valuable experience reminding all how important the ecological environment is and to think of what it truly means to coexistence with nature.
