The International geoscience Programme of UNESCO is organizing a guided visit of the photographic exhibition “Living with Volcanoes” realized by Arnaud Guérin, photograph, geologist and author.
Meeting place: in front of the Suffren Entrance, 125 avenue de Suffren

People and volcanoes have been intimately linked since their origins. All over the world, men have accommodated the anger of the Earth but have also been able to take advantage of the benefits of volcanoes. Little by little, these inexplicable phenomena entered the culture and the life of those who live at their feet. Sometimes the abodes of the gods, sometimes taboo places, volcanoes crystallize the fragile balance that governs the place of mankind on this living planet that is Earth.

More than a simple trip to the four corners of the world to discover this fused relationship between men and volcanoes, the geologist specializing in volcanoes and professional photographer Arnaud Guérin went to look for stories that allow us to better understand what volcanoes are. beyond the image of Epinal of the mountains of fire and discovering how we can live at the foot of these giants with an eruptive and unpredictable character.
