For the past ten years, the French publishing house YellowKorner has been democratizing art photography in France but also throughout the world. It hosts the exhibition "I'm Not A Trophy", aimed at supporting the protection of endangered animals .
An artistic project engaged in animal protection
Raising awareness among the general public and fighting against animal exploitation: this is the double challenge that the French photographer Arno Elias has launched. Founder of the association " I'm Not A Trophy ", the artist has made a series of painted photographs to alert in particular on the decimation of certain wild animals such as rhinos, elephants, lions ... The photographs animals, in black and white , are injected with colorful paintings reminiscent of African tribal patterns. The artist pays tribute to both wildlife and indigenous culture.
Top model Cara Delevingne, spokesperson for the campaign
To represent this project, Arno Elias appealed to a renowned personality. British model and actress Cara Delevingne has been chosen as the campaign's official ambassador. A choice that is far from trivial: the 25-year-old, who fiercely defends her beliefs on social networks, has not hesitated to lay bare in favor of the animal cause. Amongst all the photographs, two feature the fashion icon: artistic representations of wild animals are projected on his skin, thanks to an innovative concept of tracing. The funds raised through the sale these two shots will be entirely donated to the association created by Arno Elias.
Works to discover from February 8 to April 4, 2018 in YellowKorner galleries and on the site (https://imnotatrophy.org/).
