The exhibition Water, Treasure of the Himalayas began last month at the Water Pavilion in Paris.
This superb exhibition of photographs is the result of the work of photographer Jean Philippe for the image part and the geographer and anthropologist Serge Verliat for the writing part. The photographer has captured the Himalayas’ incredible scenery with a great variety of highlands, rivers, streams, fields of flowers, rocks eroded by water.
He also portrays people and ethnic groups living in these regions. Water is essential in the high peaks region of the Himalayas, the highest mountains in the world, stretching from India to Nepal, where the major rivers of Asia and India are formed.
During the opening, a traditional Indian dancer was invited to perform. Wearing a colorful sari and barefoot, her performance made us travel with her. A moment of grace and refinement that I’m happy to share with you.
