Since the 80’s, Hans Silvester has given a new orientation to his work : militancy in favor of the environment. He then photographed all the Natural Park of Europe, denounced the ravages of the deforestation in Amazonia, published a report on the Calavon river called “the murdered river” and cared about deforestation in North America.
In the 2000’s, after travelling across the world, he focused on the original Africa, the cradle of humanity.

In 2004, he met the the Omo tribe in Ethiopia, in a practically untouched zone where today’s men and women carry on the traditional ways of life. He brings back a gallery of portraits.
